Dr. Qiu’s research specification is geographic information science (GIS) with emphasis in public health, climate change, landscape ecology and cyber-GIS infrastructure.
He is interested in the development of new methodologies to synthesize large and complex datasets, detect the expected and discover the unexpected from data and communicate the findings effectively for problem solving and decision making. Traditional data analysis methods have limited capability to extract meaningful and useful knowledge from the increasingly large geographic datasets collected in various subject domains such as population census, remote sensing, climatology, social economic, public health and transportation. Dr. Qiu has developed GIS software in the scope of data integration, analysis and visualization. He has served as Co-PI for research projects funded by NIH, NSF, NASA and Transportation Research Board.
