Giuseppe Amatulli, Ph.D.
Research Scientist in GeoComputation and Spatial Science at:
Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies
Yale Center for Research Computing
Center for Science and Social Science Information
In recent years there has been an explosion of geo-datasets derived from an increasing number of remote sensors, field instruments, sensor networks, and other GPS-equipped “smart” devices. “Big Data” processing requires flexible tools that combine efficient processing, either on your local pc or on remote servers (e.g, clusters - HPCs). However, leveraging these new data streams requires new tools and increasingly complex workflows often involving multiple software and/or programming languages. This also the case for GIS and Remote Sensing analysis where statistical/mathematical algorithms are implemented in complex geospatial workflows. I will show few examples of environmental applications where I combine different open-source geo-libraries for a massive computation at Yale Center for Research Computing using High Performance Computing platform.
The seminar will be held in 409 Cramer Hall at 1:30PM on Monday Dec 19, 2016.
