Jonathan Dandois

Ph.D. 2014
GIS Web Developer / Programmer
Towson University Center for GIS, Towson, MD

Geospatial scientist with over 10 years experience across academic, commercial, environmental/non-profit sectors, with emphasis on combining field measurements with GIS and remote sensing data for map production, spatial analysis and research. Seven years of experience programming automated image processing, feature extraction and analysis tasks in Python.  I want to work with multidisciplinary teams of ecologists and computer scientists in the lab, at the computer, and in the field to tackle difficult problems related to measuring and observing ecosystem patterns and processes.

Research Interests: forest ecology, vegetation structure, computer vision, remote sensing, phenology, 3D, forest dynamics, Arducopter, UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems), multirotors, Ecosynth, drones
