Spatial Analysis and Modelling
Explore new spatial modelling tools to support the development of sustainable land and water management.
Key research skills include:
- GIS and Remote Sensing applications in water management;
- Monitoring and evaluation of surface and groundwater resources;
- Application of Remote Sensing applications in ecosystem management;
- Application of remote sensing and GIS to observe, map and model terrestrial ecosystems (e.g. productivity, biodiversity, etc.) and measure or model their responses to environmental change;
- Vegetation and habitat mapping;
- Biodiversity assessment using remote sensing and GIS-based land suitability assessment;
- Detection and mapping of plant stress and condition using hyperspectral and multispectral imagery;
- Mapping and analysis of land use/cover change, flood and water bodies - utilising remote sensing for assessing water quality;
- Regional and local crop area mapping and yield prediction utilising remote sensing and precision agricultural techniques;
- Aerial and terrestrial mapping for precision farming, landslips, structural damage survey, near-infrared technology research, stereo-imaging technology and air photo interpretation;
- Expertise in measuring technologies such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and precision surveying technologies Laser Mapping (LiDAR) for DEM, terrain analysis, GIS , Remote Sensing, Hydrological modelling, mapping vegetation canopy and structure.
