Providing products and services for mapping urban heat island characteristics from remotely sensed satellite and aircraft imagery. Projects include mapping three million hectares surrounding Houston, Texas for the state government; greater Atlanta, Georgia for the US Environmental Protection Agency; mapping the conditions in Tallahassee, Florida; Sacramento, California; and the New York City region for local utility companies; and mapping Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland for the Department of Energy.
HOMELAND SECURITY, 2004 - 2005
Participating member of the science team for the DHS/DTRA New York City Urban Dispersion Program. Providing remote sensing and GIS expertise to support atmospheric modeling applications.
ATMOSPHERIC MODELING, 2002 - 2005
Developing satellite image analysis techniques for sub-grid surface parameterization in atmospheric modeling programs.
Developing software visualization systems for 4D data sets of imagery, terrain, meteorology, air chemistry, observation data in real-time as well as historical time sequences.
COLLABORATION WITH NASA, 2000 - 2007
Signed a five year Space Act Agreement with NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in March 2002 for the commercialization of remote sensing technology for urban programs.
Signed a Joint Sponsored Research Agreement with NASA Stennis Space Center in May 2000 to develop remote sensing technology for urban heat island applications.

VIRTUAL REALITY VISUALIZATION OF IMAGERY ONLINE, 1999 – 2005
SWS mainstreams the production of 3-D sceneries for distribution online. Data sets and software delivered via the Internet. Custom and off the shelf virtual reality products provided for land cover analysis, education, and recreational uses.
NATURAL RESOURCE MAPPING WITH 3-D IMAGERY, 1997 – present
First company to introduce color enhanced 5-meter satellite imagery to the forest industry in British Columbia, Canada. Conducting an on-going development of products, services and solutions for forest management companies and government. Clients include the Provincial Forest Service and private firms. Solutions include 3D fly-through visualizations and information extraction.
REMOTE SENSING IN COASTAL ENVIRONMENTS, 1991-1992
Oceanographic applications of satellite imagery were developed to assess the biological, chemical and physical properties of coastal waters and coral reefs along the Florida Keys. Information included concentrations of chlorophyll, phytoplankton, sedimentation, temperature, bathymetry, and coral bleaching.
REMOTE SENSING IN WILDERNESS AREAS, 1989 - present
Developed a remote sensing program to analyze wilderness areas. Remote sensing capabilities were analyzed for vegetative species identification, natural vs. disturbed land cover detection, forest stand density, wetlands classification, and GIS integration.
SATELLITE IMAGERY IN LAND USE AND AGRICULTURAL MANAGEMENT, 1988
The land use and agricultural patterns of Kauai, Hawaii were surveyed to assess the potential for satellite imagery in land use planning and agricultural management.
COMPUTER MAPPING SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT, 1981-1987
SATELLITE IMAGERY ACQUISITION AND CONSULTING, 1993-2000
Supplier of all commercial satellite image data from the United States, France, India, Russia, Japan, Canada and other sources.
