Research involves using remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) to monitor and map natural resources and human settlement. Goal is to develop effective, efficient methods to provide information to scientists, policy makers and decision makers. Projects include the development of algorithms for forest fire monitoring and mapping; soil diversity studies; and the development of an image-based analysis system for precise ecological measurements.
