Crime Prediction and Spatial Statistics
We develop a novel geostatistical technique to integrate historical crime data and urban transitional zones identified from the VIIRS nightlight imagery for more accurate crime prediction.
ST-Cokriging and Image Fusion/Assimilation
We develop a spatio-temporal Cokriging (ST-Cokriging) method for assimilating multi-sensor remote sensing data that optimally determines parameters by accounting for spatio-temporal covariance. This method yields more reliable assimilation results than previous methods, effectively filling data gaps while providing quantitative uncertainty estimates.
