Keywords Geographic Information Science, Historical Landscape from the Air
Themes For the field of geographic information science (GIS), I'm interested in modeling geographical phenomena and processing spatial data on physical and human subjects. I'm specifically trying to introduce the temporal dimension to spatial data. Another field of my interest is historical landscape from the air. Using satellite imagery, I'm studying location and plan of ancient towns in the Silk Road region.
