Research Experience and Interests
Ms. Weaver joined the Geographic Information and Science Technology Group (GIST) in January 2011. She is currently on the Population Distribution and Dynamics Team and assists with projects such as LandScan Global, Population Density Tables and Socio-cultural projects through imagery analysis and data collection and development.
Prior to joining the GIST group, Ms. Weaver worked as a Geographer at Marine Corps Intelligence Activity (MCIA). At MCIA, she conducted research and analysis for beach studies to cover topics such as terrain (slope, mobility, line of sight, and categorizations), bathymetry, bottom sediments /characteristics, infrastructure, and culture. She worked closely with the Naval Research Lab to research near-shore bathymetry extraction methods by analyzing/exploiting Hyperspectral /Multispectral imagery.
Ms. Weaver is interested in using GIS and remote sensing for various applications including analysis of coastal geomorphology, and the effects on growing coastal populations. She is also interested in studying advanced geospatial techniques in radiometry, infrared systems, Hyperspectral /Multispectral imagery, and radar.
