Welcome to the kellylab page!

Our motto is "mapping for a changing California", and we use a range of mapping techniques - remote sensing, object-based image analysis, geospatial modeling, lidar analysis, participatory mapping, web visualization, and field-based monitoring - to answer applied questions about how and why California landscapes are changing, and what that means for the people who live on, derive sustenance from, and manage them. Here you will find information on people in our lab, our projects, and some connections to other groups and sites of interest. For more on geospatial technology on campus and around the state, check out the geospatial innovation facility (GIF), and the ANR Statewide Program on Informatics and GIS (IGIS). Enjoy, connect on twitter @nmaggikelly, check out the blog, and stay in touch.


Welcome to Spring 2016

Welcome to Spring 2016!

2015 was another great one.  On the people front: We welcome new graduate student Christine Wilkinson and visiting gradutate student Marcelo Bueno de Abreu to the group. On the project front: SNAMP finished (!) and several papers from SNAMP came out. VTM is alive and kicking with Kelly's work. On the IGIS front: Sean Hogan completed a year of successful and well-received workshops on cutting-edge mapping technology for ANR, and we are embarking on a new Dark Data project. On the GIF front: we capped a decade rich in mapping innovation with our 10 year anniversary celebration at GIS Day, and delivered several new and well-received workshops. We are trying out a model with short workshops being FREE. 

What we are working on Spring 2016

  • Dark Data and IGIS - Welcome Proxima DasMohapatra from the ISchool who will work with Kelly and IGIS on protocols for our IGIS Info Base. 
  • New workshops in IGIS and the GIF: stay tuned for deets
  • DS421 - working on the outreach and partnership parts of the fellowship
  • VTM - finishing up a few papers...
