    Circuit québécois de canot à glace
    Various partners

    The CGQ offered real-time GPS monitoring during the ice canoeing race. Real-time monitoring allows you to view the position of participants on a map on the event’s website.

    Families of participants as well as event organizers can follow the teams’ progress in real time. The organization therefore benefits from additional visibility.

  2. Cruise itinerary simulator
    2011
    Cruise the Saint-Laurent
    Autonomous

    The project consisted of web mapping to help cruise lines plan itineraries. This cruise simulator allows them to visualize the ports and routes taken as well as the activities at each destination.

    Cruise operators can now view on a map the itineraries they want to offer their customers. Based on the ports they select as well as the preferred dates entered, the simulator suggests cruise packages available at that time.

  3. Descente du Saguenay Promutuel (2009-2011)
    2009-2015
    Promutuel
    Various partners

    Real-time monitoring was developed by the CGQ team to offer different organizations the opportunity to follow participants during their sporting events. The CGQ provides GPS equipment and a web map that allows them to follow the participants in real time.

  4. Development of an automated system for acquiring and processing multispectral images embedded in a drone in a context of precision agriculture
    2009-2010
    Agrinova, Optech, Université de Sherbrooke
    Research and Transfer Assistance Program (PART) from the MESRST

    This project aimed to develop an automated system for acquiring and processing multispectral aerial images. The system had to meet the requirements of the use of a drone as a collection platform in terms of lightness, dimension, and autonomy. The device developed in this project consists of 3 cameras, an inertial station combined with a GPS, a power source, and an ultra-compact computer.

    The acquisition system, which demonstrated its ability to obtain accurate and reliable information on crops, made it possible to target several areas of growth. Among other things, it confirmed the feasibility of offering farmers an image mosaic in order to show them the vegetation index for their fields.

     

  5. Feasibility study on the use of geomatics tools in North American archaeology
    2014
    Subarctique enr.
    Applied research and development grant (ARD) Level 1 - NSERC

    The aim of this project was to use geomatics techniques to update work methods in archaeology. The project lasted 6 months and tested three types of tools in concrete situations of archaeological excavations. Close-range photogrammetry, among others, made it possible to create digital surface models and orthomosaics.

    The company is currently using the methods developed during this project. It now has the ability to retrieve and analyze old archaeological data, provide faster reports, and use colour photographic plans.

  6. Geospatial data acquisition and processing
    2011
    Nippour
    Funding Research and Transfer Assistance Program (PART) from the MESRST

    In collaboration with the private enterprise, this project aimed to develop a process to assess the volume extracted in a quarry or sand pit using three-dimensional correlation from aerial images.

    Thanks to this project, the team was able to validate the technology and Nippour was able to add this service to its portfolio. The team demonstrated that it is possible to use this technique to calculate volume.

     

  7. Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie (2012-2015)
    2012-2015
    Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie
    Various partners

    The CGQ offered real-time GPS monitoring during the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie. Dashboards were developed so that the organization could follow the convoy and at the same time, plan movements according to the speed and expected time of arrival.

    The Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie is now accessible in real time via the event’s website. This way, the population can follow the convoy and plan their movements accordingly. The team of the Grand Défi Pierre Lavoie has also improved its efficiency since it can now coordinate the arrival at rest areas and the speed of the convoy.

  8. Multispectral imaging as a tool for analyzing and diagnosing soil productivity in precision farming
    2010-2011
    Agrinova
    PART Multicentre

    The research team wanted to demonstrate the advantages of using multispectral aerial imagery combining visible and near infrared as a tool for analyzing and diagnosing soil productivity in precision agriculture.

    It can be said that multispectral imaging is a very good tool for analyzing and diagnosing soil productivity because a high chlorophyll content implies a large amount of biomass and a significant amount of biomass is synonymous with high crop yield. Soil composition can also be considered, and this study shows that the presence or absence of certain chemical elements influences crop yield.

    Advantages: The use of aerial imaging allowed farmers to get an overview of their fields and take the necessary actions.

  9. Oriente ton monde !
    2013
    Groupe Trifide, K2 Geospatial
    MERST

    This project was designed to introduce geomatics to high school students in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region. Activities related to GPS and geomatics software were presented.

    The CGQ met several schools in the region. The field of geomatics was presented to more than 500 students. Several activities were carried out with these students.

  10. Remote sensing of shoreline algae
    2014-2015
    Pêcheries Uapan
    Applied Research and Development Grant (ARD) Level 1 – NSERC

    The aim of this project was to develop a new inventory methodology using advanced technologies in the field of shoreline algae. Equipped with a multispectral camera, an unmanned aerial vehicle flew over several sections of Côte-Nord beach. The images acquired were processed to extract as much information as possible about the algal cover.

     

  11. Smart and digital organization
    2001-2015
    Municipalities of Québec
    Autonomous

    The CGQ offers to support municipalities in their technological choices and for them to have a better understanding of their resources. The CGQ can perform a detailed analysis of human and software resources in order to offer a complete geomatization plan with recommendations that correspond to their true needs.

    Municipal managers receive a comprehensive report with recommendations for managing geomatics within their organization. They can then take concrete actions to improve geomatics operations.

  12. Visible and thermal infrared remote sensing of the white-tailed deer using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)
    2012-2013
    Université de Sherbrooke, ING Robotic Aviation
    Industrial Innovation Scholarship Program (BMP) from the FQRNT, NSERC

    The objective of this project was to evaluate the performance of an aircraft-sensor system for the detection and inventory of white-tailed deer in a controlled environment.

    The use of UAVs for wildlife inventory was validated. This project also allowed the CGQ to be influential in various conferences in Québec and Canada.

  13. Volumetric data estimates using aerial images from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV)
    2012
    ING Robotic Aviation and CARTEL of the Université de Sherbrooke
    Applied Research and Development Grant – Level 1 - NSERC

    The objective of this project was to assess the ability of unmanned aerial vehicles to measure volume in gravel and sand pits. The aim of the project was to develop and optimize a system for acquiring and processing aerial images using UAV.

    ING was able to validate its UAV’s ability to measure volume in gravel pits and offer this service to its clients. The method was found to be more than 98% accurate compared to traditional collection methods.
