Research Interests

Dr. Xie's primary research interests have been focused on Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies, theories, and applications since 1993. His technical skills include expertise in uses of various image processing software and GIS tools. He has strong experiences in computer software development and GIS programming and is particularly interested in interdisciplinary research by integrating remote sensing, GIS, field measurements to geology (the Earth and the Mars), agriculture, surface hydrology, terrestrial ecosystems, hydrometeorology, urban development, cryosphere, and environmental studies. His technical expertise has allowed him to approach many research questions in regard to spatio-temporal patterns and processes through quantitative analysis and modeling.
