Dr Hay joined the Department in June 2005, was promoted to Associate in April 2011, and became an ISEEE Fellow in June, 2011. He has over 20 years experience in GIScience, specializing in Geospatial-Object Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) - emphasis Energy and Environment. Hay leads an active graduate research program in GEOBIA, Co-directs the UofC eCognition Center of Excellence and the Foothills Facility for Remote Sensing and GIScience. He is the author of more than 160 scholarly works, including a recent co-authored book on GEOBIA (Springer, 2008) and 4 co/edited international remote sensing special issues on related topics (CJRS, 1999; JAG, 2005; PERS, 2010, Remote Sens., 2011). Dr Hay was the international conference Chair and host of GEOBIA 2008, is a member of the Scientific Committee for GEOIBA 2010/2012, and was a Co-Chair for the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) Working Group IV/4 – “Virtual Globes and Context-Aware Visualisation/Analysis.” (2009-2011). Dr Hay has recently returned from Sabbatical Leave (August 2011 – June 2012) at the Centre for Spatial Environmental Research, at The University of Queensland, Brisbane Australia (GPEM).
The primary objective of Dr Hay's scientific program is to develop and apply innovative multiscale geospatial object-based image-analysis (GEOBIA) approaches to enhance theory and understanding of landscape structure and dynamics at multiple scales, and provide innovative new tools and methods to better map, monitor, model and manage complex environments. Previous work has focused on using high-resolution multispectral imagery and small footprint lidar data for forestry and wetland applications. More recent areas of focus involve high-resolution thermal imaging to support Urban Energy Efficiency, Low Carbon Communities (see the HEAT project) and municipal Green Roof projects.
