WisconsinView focuses on three research themes:

  • Geospatial image management and integration
    • Mapservice optimization (WMS, WFS, WCS)
    • Imagery sets, spatial databases, and API testing (GoogleMaps, KML etc)
    • Atmospheric and Geospatial Science integration
    • MODIS Imagery collection and distribution techniques
  • Remote sensing of Lakes
    • Lake clarity measured from satellites (Wisconsin Lakes)
    • Multi-Sensor integration (MODIS, Landsat, other)
    • Regional water color product development (Great Lakes)
  • Hazard mapping
    • Techniques for tornado swath mapping
    • Techniques for flood extent mapping
    • Development of custom products for WEM and NOAA-NWS
