Visible, near-infrared and thermal hyperspectral imagery in urban areas

Dr. François Cavayas

University of Montreal

Dr. François Cavayas received a degree in surveying engineering in 1976 from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, the M.Sc. degree in photogrammetry in 1979, and the Ph.D. degree in geodetic sciences and remote sensing in 1984 from Laval University, Quebec, Canada. From 1984 to 1985, he was postdoctoral research scientist at the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing. In 1985, he joined the Department of Geography of Montreal University, where he is currently a full professor. His principal teaching expertise is in remote sensing and mapping. In 1986, with his former colleague Prof. James Gray, he founded the Laboratory of Remote Sensing, which has a significant contribution to the education and training of new generations of remote sensing scientists in Quebec, with more than forty students who have already completed their Ph.D. or M.Sc. degree under his supervision. His research expertise is in radiometric corrections of optical images and in mapping applications from remotely sensed data in various environments, especially in urban areas. Current research projects focus on the radiometric corrections of high-resolution-hyperspectral images in the optical domain, mapping of atmospheric pollutants in urban areas using satellite data, as well as on the extraction of morphological characteristics of cities using SAR interferometry and polarimetric interferometry.
