    Research Interests

      Ned Horning, Director of Applied Biodiversity Informatics, has over 30 years experience using remote sensing, GIS, and related skills including field mapping and the collection of training and validation data to aid and evaluate remote sensing-based mapping projects. His specialties include mapping and monitoring land cover at local through global scales and developing geospatial data processing and analysis education and outreach materials. Recent interests are focused on developing methods to process imagery acquired using low altitude platforms (poles, kites, balloons, UAVs...) to extract information for mapping and monitoring species and landscapes. Prior to starting his tenure at the American Museum of Natural History's Center for Biodiversity and Conservation in 2002 he worked for nine years at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland and spent nine years working as an independent geospatial consultant.
