Area of Expertise:Ecosystem Services, Landcover Change, GIS
I am interested in understanding the impact of landcover change on the environment’s ability to provide ecosystem services. To do this, I am coming up with ways to map select ecosystem services across the Upper San Pedro Watershed, as well as looking for thresholds in water stress that causes vegetation to die off and landcover to change.
Area of Expertise:GIS Analysis/Development, Watershed Hydrology and Management, Visual C#/VB.NET programming
I currently work on development and maintenance of functionality for the Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment tool (AGWA).
My research focuses on incorporating best management practices related to low impact development into AGWA. My overall goal is to setup various parameters for existing models to analyze the effects of low impact development on discharge and sediment yield in watersheds.
Title:Research Specialist, Senior
Area of Expertise:Remote Sensing, GIS, Land Use/Land Cover Classification, Cartography, MODIS, Landsat, LiDAR, Timesat, Definiens, SEE5
My current research involves the collection and processing of 10 years of MODIS data for the complete continental United States. Acquiring this data will allow the lab to perform multiple research projects focusing on changes in phenology due to clima
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a high growth industry and is everywhere. In general industry terms, entry level GIS analysts annual salaries start in the $30-40K range and developers in the $40-50K range. Senior level positions in a technical specialty will commonly range from $60 - $85K and then those involve in a specialty with some kind of management or business focus can earn over $100K.
The Advanced Resource Technology Group (ART) was formed in 1988 with an aim to provide leadership in such areas as GIS institutional development, GIS environmental database design and development, application of cartographic and spatial analysis for agriculture, natural resources, and rural development. Besides using traditional remote sensing and GIS techniques, researchers at ART are developing the next generation of GIS-based modeling and simulation tools including artificial intelligence, intelligent visualization, synthetic environments, and semantic-based data access.
