Research and Resources with ART

The ART Group encourages researchers from all areas of science to become active research members of the group. Research requires cooperation among scientists, and in ART this is our strongest belief. The advancement of science in natural resource management can be accomplished only through researchers from varied disciplines coming together to solve a problem. Participation in ART requires only the willingness of the investigator to share resources and help to promote the ART facility as a major research laboratory. The following illustrate topics on which ART researchers are currently working.

GIS and Environmental Database Design and Development

  • The design and management of very large (terabyte) datasets
  • Multiuser access to data via networked services

Development of GIS-based Applications and Modeling

  • Data independent model design for GIS coupled models
  • Fire growth simulation for wildland fire
  • Wind profiling for high resolution applications

Visualization and Perception

  • Human perception of the environment
  • Automated visualization of domain specific data

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Applications

  • Significant Event Detection for computer simulations
  • Vegetation mapping
  • Image content extraction

Advanced Computing

  • Implementation of supercomputing and distributed computing environments
  • Problem Solving Environments
