Portrait of Helen Jenny

I am currently an assistant professor (senior research) in the field of Geographic Information Science in the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University.

My research focuses on developing methods to better understand, visualize, and distribute geospatial datasets. In my work, I combine methods from cartography, GIS and computer graphics, with an emphasis on 3D and Internet technology. Past projects include:

  • Geovisual analysis of forest ecosystem behavior under various climate change assumptions

  • Methods for change detection in complex spatio-temporal datasets

  • Geometric deformation methods for 3D terrain models

  • Interactive geospatial information portals, including natural hazards information systems

  • Pseudo-natural texture synthesis for panorama maps

Recent research interests concentrate on mobile applications and geospatial representation and analysis in a business information systems context.
