Research Interests


- Low-resolution (NOAA AVHRR) forest classification includes thermal band- High-resolution (Landsat TM) forest classification includes thermal band- Multi-resolution forest classification includes thermal band- Object-Oriented data model for multi-resolution / multi-temporal remote sensing and GIS data sets- Currently working on related-research with NOAA AVHRR and MODIS data include :

  1. The analysis of effect from land types to day and night data from NOAA AVHRR and MODIS
  2. Geometric correction for NOAA AVHRR and MODIS
  3. Radiometric correction for NOAA AVHRR and MODIS
  4. Atmospheric correction for NOAA AVHRR and MODIS

- Currently working on related-research on Real Time Kinematics Differential GPS and the development of mobile system utilizing open source software- Currently working on related-research on the archaeological remote sensing and GIS including the remote sensing and GIS for archaeology in Southeast Asia- Currently working on related-research on the archaeological Virtual Reality, including 3D modeling from digital photographs and from laser scanning
