wuQiusheng Wu’s research interests include Geographic Information Science (GIS), remote sensing, and environmental modeling. More specifically, he is interested in applying geospatial big data, machine learning, and cloud computing (e.g., Google Earth Engine) to study environmental change, especially surface water and wetland inundation dynamics. He has developed and published various open-source packages for advanced geospatial analysis, which are available on GitHub. More information about his research can be found on his personal website and research blog

Courses taught at UTK:

  • GEOG 111 – Our Digital Earth

Open-source Projects:

I have developed a number of open-source packages that have been widely used by the geospatial community, such as geemap, lidar, and WhiteboxTools frontends (e.g., whitebox-python, whiteboxR, whitebox-ArcGIS, whitebox-jupyter). Check out my GitHub page for more information about the projects I am working on.

YouTube Channel:
