Research AreasGIS, image processing, cartography
Scheduled to retire in 2016, and is no longer taking Graduate students
Currently I am working on the following rather different research projects.
- The development of geospatial search methods. With a strong emphasis on remote sensing, GIS, and photographic imaging and interpretation; artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive science concepts; and on field techniques. The field sites are in California, and the application area is searching for gold
- Georeconnaissance. In particular as it relates to applied geographic imaging and mapping. I define georeconnaissance as: "To access and try to learn locations, features and conditions in a geographic district". With both local and international relevance. A methodological framework has been developed primarily for World Bank (IMF) projects over the past decade and a half.
- The use of flight simulators for virtual aerial georeconnaissance in research, teaching and applied/operational contexts.
Finally, I have an interest in the future development of geographic unmanned aerial vehicle (G-UAV) applications.
