21 Feb. 2012 Prof. Yan Lei, director of Head of Spatial Information Integration & Its Applications Beijing Key Laboratory, from the RS & GIS Institute of Peking University, visited CSISS, and gave a presentation.
9 July 2010
Dr. Gil Heo is a visiting scholar from South Korea. He gave a presentation on his research about applying the sensor technology in creating a Ubiquitous Smart Space(USS) for Wellbeing Life and monitoring land using vehicle-mounted-sensors.
30 June 2010
CSISS/GMU participated OGC Web Services Phase 7 (OWS-7) of the OGC Interoperability Program Initiative: Sensor Fusion Enablement (SFE) thread and Aviation Thread.
In the SFE thread, we developed an OWS-7 Motion Imagery (MI) Discovery and Retrieval Engineering Report. The report documents the metadata items used for accurate geopositioning of MI in order to enable the discovery, retrieval, and temporal and geometrical linkage of MI with other data sources. We also designed and implemented a Change Detection Web Processing Service (WPS). The WPS compares two MI data streams of the same region from a Sensor Observation Service (SOS) and detects and delineates changes between the two MI.
In the Aviation thread, we contributed to the OGC IP Engineering Report - Aviation Portrayal. We also developed a Web Feature Service (WFS) 2.0, which is based on the severe weather detection model developed by Dr. John F Moses at NASA GSFC.
1 April 2010
GMU-NOAA Cooperative Center for Earth Science Informatics Research (GESIR) first year progress report was hold in Greenbelt office. NOAA officials, Kenneth McDonald, Lewis D. McCulloch, and Martin Yapur, visited CSISS today. Prof. Liping Di presented the progress report to them about the R&D activities at CESIR in the first year.
19-21 January 2010
OWS-7 Kickoff was hold at George Mason University, Fairfax Virginia campus. CSISS representives, Dr. Peisheng Zhao and Dr. Genong Yu, joined this activities.
26 June 2009
CSISS representives, Dr. Peisheng Zhao and Dr. Genong Yu, joined the OWS-6 interoperability day in Cambridge, MA, USA.
25 March 2009
NASA Ecosystem forecasting program manager, Dr. Gary Geller, visited us and gave a talk on Model web on afternoon of March 25 starting at 1:30pm. After the talk, Liping Di gave him the review on CSISS work on geoprocessing modeling. We agreed to utilize the GeoBrain software products to promote the Model Web concept through some typical decision support scenarios.
23 January 2009
Douglas D. Nebert and CSISS director, Prof.Liping Di, along with four
CSISS members, Dr.Genong (Eugene) Yu, Xuanang Cheng, Upendra Dadi and
Dr.Yuqi Bai, hold thd USGS landsat project planning meeting in USGS
CSISS's flagship geospatial software product, GeoBrain, will be used to build an integrated data discovery, data analysis, data customization, and data dissemination workbench system for USGS landsat images.
During this meeting, a polar ecosystems scenario was defined, and main technical issues were discussed, with the project milestones finialized.
