What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Remote sensing

Michael A. Wulder focuses on Remote sensing, Land cover, Lidar, Remote sensing and Satellite imagery. His Remote sensing research integrates issues from Cartography, Pixel and Vegetation. His Land cover research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Plant cover, Earth observation and Compositing.

His research integrates issues of Basal area, Canopy, Tree canopy, Sampling and Forest inventory in his study of Lidar. His research in Basal area tackles topics such as Point cloud which are related to areas like Ecology. Michael A. Wulder interconnects Natural, Variety and Information needs in the investigation of issues within Remote sensing.

His most cited work include:

  • Landsat-8: Science and Product Vision for Terrestrial Global Change Research (1061 citations)
  • Good practices for estimating area and assessing accuracy of land change (957 citations)
  • LiDAR remote sensing of forest structure (761 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Michael A. Wulder mainly investigates Remote sensing, Land cover, Forest inventory, Lidar and Cartography. His Remote sensing study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Canopy and Vegetation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Pixel, Earth observation and Environmental resource management in addition to Land cover.

His Forest inventory study combines topics in areas such as Mean squared error, Photogrammetry and Tree. His work carried out in the field of Lidar brings together such families of science as Tree canopy, Basal area and Taiga. The various areas that he examines in his Cartography study include Image resolution and High spatial resolution.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (55.36%)
  • Land cover (18.03%)
  • Forest inventory (17.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Remote sensing (55.36%)
  • Land cover (18.03%)
  • Physical geography (8.80%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Remote sensing, Land cover, Physical geography, Lidar and Basal area. His work in the fields of Remote sensing, such as Photogrammetry, overlaps with other areas such as Laser scanning. His Land cover study incorporates themes from Remote sensing, Habitat, Cartography and Data science.

His studies deal with areas such as Satellite imagery, Forest ecology, Ecosystem, Disturbance and Vegetation as well as Physical geography. His work investigates the relationship between Forest ecology and topics such as Biomass that intersect with problems in Canopy. His Basal area study which covers Random forest that intersects with Thematic Mapper.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Current status of Landsat program, science, and applications (184 citations)
  • Land cover 2.0 (108 citations)
  • Benefits of the free and open Landsat data policy (98 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Artificial intelligence

His scientific interests lie mostly in Remote sensing, Physical geography, Basal area, Lidar and Remote sensing. His research in Remote sensing intersects with topics in Forest inventory, Earth observation and Canopy. His work in Physical geography tackles topics such as Ecosystem which are related to areas like Boreal, Ecozone, Wetland and Earth observation satellite.

His Basal area research also works with subjects such as

  • Random forest that intertwine with fields like Biomass and Thematic Mapper,
  • Imputation and related Cartography, Spatial analysis, Digital elevation model, Quadratic mean diameter and Linear regression. His Cartography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Vegetation and Time series. He interconnects Land cover, Land use, Satellite imagery and Environmental planning in the investigation of issues within Remote sensing.
