MoU Between IADC And UNESCO-IHE11/02/2013
|An official Memorandum of Understanding between the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) and UNESCO-IHE, has formalised the cooperation between the organisations and given a broader perspective for the future. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by IADC President Peter de Ridder on behalf of the IADC and Rector/ Prof. A. Szöllösi-Nagy, PhD on behalf of UNESCO-IHE at an official ceremony in Delft, The Netherlands.|
IADC and UNESCO-IHE will continue to work together on projects such as short courses on ‘Coastal Engineering and Port Development' (CEPD) and the IADC’s week-long course on dredging and reclamation which has been presented annually at the UNESCO-IHE Delft campus for two decades.
In general, the IADC will offer the more than 14,500 UNESCO-IHE alumni students and alumni a wealth of technical knowledge through its publications. The IADC will also encourage its members to support research projects of UNESCO-IHE students. On the other hand, these UNESCO-IHE alumni from developing countries and countries in transition in Africa, Asia and Latin America can be of importance to the IADC as potential clients and employees.

How to Use QPS' Qimera to Validate Processed Point Files
QPS Qimera processing software has been released earlier this year. To demonstrate the capabilities, this video shows how to load processed point files into a Qimera Project. It explains what processed point files are; how to specify the coordinate system of the project and the source files; how to create a Dynamic Surface from processed point files and how to change the dynamic surface and adjust the colour map to aid data editing and validation.
