The Intelligent Remote sensing and geospatial Information Science (IRIS) lab, led by Professor Jungho Im in the Department of Urban and Environmental Engineering at UNIST has announced that three of its researchers, have recently been honored for scientific achievements and contributions.
The 2022 Korean Association of Geographic Information Studies (KAGIS) Annual Fall Meeting successfully held, jointly with the IAG’i International Symposium from November 3 to 5, 2022. At the conference, which took place in the Ara Convention Hall of Jeju National University (JNU), the following three students from IRIS lab were given the Best Paper Awards: SiWoo Lee (2022 KAGIS Best Paper Award), SangHyeon Song (2022 KAGIS Best Paper Award), and Audrieauna Beatty (2022 IAG’i Best Paper Award).
SiWoo Lee was given the 2022 KAGIS Best Paper Award for proposing an AI-powered urban thermal environment analysis technique based on land-cover change. SangHyeon Song was also given the 2022 KAGIS Best Paper Award for proposing a method for deriving aerosol optical depth (AOD) from geostationary satellite data, using the LightGBM model. Audrieauna Beatty won the 2022 IAG’i Best Paper Award for presenting machine learning-based prediction approach in AOD levels analysis, using the GEMS satellite observations.
