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 webGIS 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, check out the geospatial innovation facility (GIF) and the GIS@Berkeley website. Enjoy, check out the blog, and stay in touch.

Spatial Data Science Bootcamp: May 2015

We live in a world where the importance and availability of spatial data are ever increasing. Today’s marketplace needs trained spatial data analysts who can:

  • compile disparate data from multiple sources;
  • use easily available and open technology for robust data analysis, sharing, and publication;
  • apply core spatial analysis methods;
  • and utilize visualization tools to communicate with project managers, the public, and other stakeholders.

With this Spatial Data Science Bootcamp for professionals, you will learn how to integrate modern Spatial Data Science techniques into your workflow through hands-on exercises that leverage open source and cloud/web-based technologies.

As technology is rapidly changing, the goal is not to teach a specific suite of tools but rather to teach participants how to develop and refine repeatable and testable workflows for spatial data using common standard programming practices.

Join us at the Geospatial Innovation Facility (GIF) to expand your geospatial toolkit and explore new web- enhanced ways to visualize and communicate your data!

Applications due: 3/16/2015. SIGN UP HERE.
