Dr. Lars Brabyn

larsbrab

Senior Lecturer in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in the Department of Geography, Tourism and Environmental Planning.

Lars specialises in applications of GIS to biodiversity modelling and landscape character classification. He has developed the New Zealand Landscape Classification, which combines landform, land-cover, infrastructure, and water information into one geo-spatial database. Lars has also been developing robust mapping techniques for monitoring vegetation change at detailed scales (0.1mm to 100m) in Antarctica.
