Research

My expertise is in geographic information systems (GIS) and their use on the Internet (web GIS); decision support systems; spatially referenced databases; massive data mining; web mapping; mobility; the Internet of Things (IoT); machine learning; and multi-source data fusion for decision support. The systems developed are used to support various geomatics applications: natural resources, geology, transportation and ecosystems. I also have strong interests in the processing, management and analysis of remotely sensed data - images and signals - for the extraction of descriptive parameters in order to facilitate the identification, segmentation or classification of information.
