Main research interests of the lab are focused on renewable energy resources and natural resources management from the perspective of GIS (Geographic Information Systems), engineering geology and remote sensing. GIS technology is an effective solution for solving various engineering problems in both developed and developing environments. It is a vital tool for prediction of spatial variation of ground properties, mine exploration, reclamation of mining sites, geohazards prediction and the evaluation of renewable energy resources. Recent research topics include modern scientific approaches such as remote sensing and image processing, combined with conventional site investigation techniques in the area of engineering geology. Sophisticated visualization and analysis technologies are applied to cutting-edge researches including CCS (Carbon Capture & Storage) monitoring, polar exploration and smartphone application development.
