Research information:

Dr Huhua Cao has been involved in extensive research activities in North America, Asia, Eastern Europe and Africa. In recent years, his research has focused on urban and regional development in China, particularly minority regions, and around the following three axes: 1) Mobility and Urbanisation; 2) Spatial inequality and Accessibility of social services; 3) Ecosystem Assessment and Management (EAM). The majority of his research is founded on the usage of geostatistical methods and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Professor Cao’s research has been funded several times by institutions including the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) and also by Chinese Government ministries such as the Ministry of Science and Technology and Ministry of Education.

Research information:

My main field of research is applied Geomatics. Geomatics consists of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS), Global Positioning systems(GPS), Spatial Analysis, Cartography, and Geodesy. Like information systems in general, geomatics is an enabling science that extends the IT model into the geographic realm with techniques and methods applicable to almost every conceivable discipline. For example, I currently have active projects in fields including: disaster mapping of tsunami devestated regions in the Bay of Bengal, health geography/epidimiology, wireless telecommunications, precision agriculture, and Quaternary climate change among others. Geomatics underlies our everyday activities as the science is used for both the planning and management of anything that exists in geographic space.
