Mon-Shieh Yang from Taiwan joins GIScience Team

Mr. Mon-Shieh Yang, a senior PhD candidate from the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Department of Earth Sciences, has been awarded a grant of the National Science Council (NSC) of Taiwan to join the LiDAR Research Group (LRG) of the Chair of GIScience Heidelberg from July 2014 to April 2015.

His research will focus on the investigation of LiDAR point cloud data to develop novel 3D GIScience methods for the extraction of surface properties (e.g. surface roughness), which are of major relevance for geomorphological, hydraulic and engineering applications in Taiwan.

Mon-Shieh, Welcome to Heidelberg and our GIScience team!
