About The Event
Speaker: Dr. Qiusheng Wu
Summary: Geospatial technology has played a pivotal role in shaping my career path. From initial explorations in Google Earth to advanced geospatial analytics and open-source software development, the use of geospatial tools has provided not just a technical skillset, but a unique lens through which to view the world. In this talk, I will highlight key projects that exemplify the power of spatial thinking in addressing environmental challenges. I will wrap up the discussion by offering insights into emerging trends that are shaping the future of geospatial analytics.
About the speaker: Dr. Qiusheng Wu is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography & Sustainability at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. In addition, he holds positions as an Amazon Visiting Academic and a Senior Research Fellow at the United Nations University. Specializing in geospatial data science and open-source software development, Dr. Wu is particularly focused on leveraging big geospatial data and cloud computing to study environmental changes, with an emphasis on surface water and wetland inundation dynamics. He is the creator of several open-source packages designed for advanced geospatial analysis and visualization, including geemap, leafmap, and segment-geospatial. For a closer look at his open-source contributions, please visit his GitHub repository: https://github.com/opengeos.
The presentation will be delivered virtually. An in-person viewing will be available through Jordan Hall Addition 1216, and all others may join here: go.ncsu.edu/geospatial-forum-live.
We will be hosting a post-forum social from 4:30 to 6:00 at the Raleigh Brewing Company to celebrate the end of GIS Week. Feel free to drop by!
