Meet Our Landscape Dynamics 2021–22 Undergrad Researchers
The Center’s Landscape Dynamics group is excited to welcome four new undergrad researchers who bring talents from a variety of majors to our biological invasions and urban systems research.
“I Use Geospatial Analytics To…” Part IV
Curious about what our newest Geospatial Analytics Ph.D. students work on for their dissertations? Check out how they and their advisors use geospatial analytics to impact a range of fields.
New PoPS Border Simulation Supports Front Lines of Pest Detection
Software developers at the Center for Geospatial Analytics have released the first version of a pest or pathogen spread (PoPS) simulation that can quantify the effectiveness of inspections at ports of entry and reveal how many pests are missed.
Observing Long-Term Annual Land Surface Phenology at Medium Spatial Resolution
Geospatial Analytics Ph.D. student Xiaojie Gao has developed a new approach to track landscape-scale changes in plant life cycles using Bayesian methods and 30-m-resolution Landsat imagery.
Researchers Design Simulation Tool to Predict Disease, Pest Spread
A team led by Research Scholar Chris Jones developed a computer simulation tool called PoPS to predict pest and disease attacks on crops or forests, and to test when and where to apply pesticides or other management strategies to contain them.
GIS Problem-Solving Through Service Learning
During the Spring 2021 semester, our graduating professional master’s students applied their knowledge and skills in community partnerships that supported affordable housing, pollution prevention, local planning and more.
Where There’s Smoke: Reducing Downwind Impacts of Prescribed Burns
New research by Geospatial Analytics Ph.D. student Kate Jones will use geospatial modeling and interactive data visualization to help fire managers consider the vulnerability of communities downwind of prescribed burns.
