Welcome to the LRSG !
The Laboratory for Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics (LRSG),
established in fall 2004, was first funded by the University of Texas at
San Antonio (UTSA), with further support from the
U.S. Department of Education (DE)
Other funding supports to the Lab include NASA, NSF, NOAA, USGS, and
other agencies and institutions (list
of funded grants). The LRSG group is primary working on
projects related to the four fields:
Arctic and Antarctic sea ice, and its ecosystem and climate
Assessment of water resources in Tibetan Plateau, through studying
change of glacier lakes, glaciers, and snow cover under climate
Remote sensing of surface hydrology and modeling (precipitation,
snow cover, soil moisture, land surface temperature,
Remote sensing of Martian minerals/rocks and surface processes.
The LRSG is located at the Science Building of the
1604 campus, including a teaching lab (SB2.01.02, tel
and a graduate research office (SB4.02.07, tel 458-7815).
This lab has
state-of-the-art field instruments and 30 computers and 8 high
performance workstations equipped with core remote sensing and GIS
software. Together with the Spatial Analysis Lab (SB2.03.04) we
offer various GIS, GPS, and Remote Sensing courses. We support
students seeking Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral degrees in
Multidisciplinary Science, and
Environmental Science and Engineering.
We also offer the
GIS Graduate Certificate Program.
Our research includes remote sensing, GIS (spatial analysis,
statistic analysis, geodatabase, Internet GIS), GPS, and their
applications to geology, hydrology, ecosystems, agriculture,
forestry, hydrometeorology, urban development, environmental
studies, Arctic/Antarctic, Tibetan Plateau, and planetary and space studies (such as
Mars and Moon). (List
of hardware and software we have).
