Work experience
I am mainly engaged in research on the application of Remote Sensing and GIS to resources, environment and landscape ecology, including resources and environment, survey, planning, dynamic monitoring, remote sensing survey of landscape ecology, landscape pattern analyzing, landscape planning, ecological function region division of forest, sorest spatial pattern studying and the relevant informtion management system studying. I have undertaken several important scientific research projects, for instance, Synthetical Remote Sensing Survey of Three North Shelter Forest, Study on Forest Resources Survey, Dynamic Monitoring and Information Management System of Diebu Forest Bureau, Gansu Province, Study on the Landscape Pattern of Forst Island in Helan Mountain, etc. In these projects, there were some achievements on the theory and method of remote sensing image processing, the application of GIS and the integration of remote sensing and GIS.
Highest Academic achievement and qualification
Bachelor, forestry, North-west agricultural University, 1960.
