Conrad Blucher Institute (CBI)

Conrad Blucher Institute logoThe Conrad Blucher Institute conducts innovative research and encourages scientists and engineers to develop and apply technology solutions relevant to surveying, scientific measurements, and to the issues in the Gulf of Mexico region. The Institute maintains a national reputation for developing innovative geospatial science research and serves as a focused resource area for geospatial datasets.  Our projects consist of coastal monitoring, mapping dynamic boundaries such shorelines and rivers, beach erosion studies, oceanic/atmospheric predictions and other related research including analysis of point clouds collected with Unmanned Aerial Systems. To provide for the unique needs of Texas surveyors, CBI develops and organizes strong continuing education and research programs in GIS, Geomatics and Geospatial Computing.

Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES)
