Jason Tullis, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Geosciences
University of Arkansas, Fayetteville
Jason A. Tullis is an Assistant Professor specializing in remote sensing at University of Arkansas; he is a member of the Department of Geosciences and is affiliated with the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) and the Arkansas Center for Space and Planetary Sciences; Dr. Tullis’ interests focus on remote sensing and GIS-assisted decision support in North and Latin American biogeography and functional landscape health, management of spatial scale, and forest biophysical remote sensing.
The significance of spatial and other scales in GIS and remote sensing are only beginning to be understood in the context of spatial computing. Discussions at the 2009 NSF workshop entitled "Bridging the Cyber, Physical and Social Worlds"
including "Geographic Info System Scaleability" (see link on right of "Bridges" page) are directly applicable to a variety of high performance computing efforts that target spatial decision support. High performance computing can be used to simultaneously optimize the digital application of spatial and other scales in multiple domains.
