The Geospatial Laboratory for Environmental Dynamics
is co-directed by
Dr Paul Gessler
and Dr Lee Vierling and is in the College of
Natural Resources at the University of Idaho.
The lab focuses on all aspects of environmental remote
traditional analysis of multispectral remote sensing to the cutting-edge application of geospatial
methods such as LiDAR, flux towers, and Hyperspectral sensors to characterize landscape-regional-global scale process.
Spatial measurements are at the core of all Natural
Resources research and management, whether we are using a GIS to map plant
or animal populations or are using LiDAR for forest inventory measurements.
Current: The UI CNR Geospatial Research and Teaching Labs are being
renovated... come and see our new facilities
Brown Bag Sessions: Unofficial luncheons to help students
prepare for oral presentations are being arranged
Prestigious National Fellowship.

Resources studying forest resource management, has been awarded the Colwell
Memorial Fellowship by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote
What is Remote Sensing?
"The science and art of obtaining information
about an object, area, or phenomenon through the analysis of data acquired
by a device that is not in contact with the object, area, or phenomenon
