Dr. Armenakis’ research interests are in the areas of rapid and on-time mapping and monitoring methods and technology using imaging and ranging data. Current research areas include: a) the development and use of low-cost unmanned aerial mapping systems (UMAS) and mobile mapping systems for rapid mapping, monitoring and tracking to explore their potential and reliability in operational environments; and b) the development of methods and technology for spatial feature extraction, terrain modelling and spatio-temporal change detection and extraction from imaging and ranging data using photogrammetric, remote sensing and GIS methods.
