GIST

Faculty in this group perform research in remote sensing and GIS. This includes development of remote-sensing image classification algorithms, as well as geographic information system (GIS)-based modeling and spatial-analysis techniques. Remote sensing research focuses on development of automated techniques for estimating terrestrial (for example, vegetation, soil) biophysical properties, whereas GIS technique development focuses on geocoding, decision support systems, and geovisualization. Departmental foci include: CyberGIS, geocomputation, artificial intelligence, terrain analysis and mapping, river floodplain and mountain geomorphology, cryospheric sciences, plant science, freshwater aquatic and coastal ocean ecosystems, health-science GIS, urbanization and land-use/land-cover modeling, interactions between socio-economic and biophysical systems, and systems modeling.
