Data and Satellite Images

Ask me about:

 

Dr. Jaime Almonacid-Caballer has developed the main part of his career in the Dept. Cartographic Engineering, Geodesy and Photogrammetry. Where he obtained the PhD in December of 2014. His Bachelor and PhD Thesis are related to coastal management, concretely on the subpixel automated coastline extraction from Landsat imagery, which includes automated georreferenciation, evaluation and analysis derived from those lines.

Other works have been related with the development of a low cost aerial photogrammetric tools, the mathematical development of terrestrial photogrammetric constraints oriented to coastal management.

He worked with point clouds derived both from Photogrammetric techniques and LiDAR to obtain derived products needed for the coastal managements (DTMs, DSMs etc). He also co-worked in the development of LiDAR tools in ENVI/IDL.

During 2016 he worked as Quality Control manager in the LiDAR group of Aerodata International Surveys placed in Utrecht (The netherlands). After getting into the LiDAR processing workflow (mainly developed with RiEGL systems/software and TerraScan) he was responsible of the Quality of the delivered data and on fixing any complaint from older deliveries. He was in charge on finding simpler and faster ways to improve the workflow. As a matter of research, he was in charge of spreading the point of view to detect automatically any geometric problem (mainly working with Tie Lines and vertical surface mismatches) trying always to work with freeware and simple but usable tools.

Nowadays he is developing he is part of the CGAT team co-working in several fields. He is working in the analysis and filtering of time series, researching the potential uses and limitations of radar data in coastal environments and developing some improvements in coastal close range photogrammetry.
