Xun Shi

|Professor of Geography

My specialty is in geographic information systems (GIS), quantitative spatial analysis and modeling, and the geocomputational approach. I have explored the applications of GI technologies in various domains, particularly in health studies, digital soil mapping, urban and regional planning, public participation, and renewable energy studies.
