Portrait of Helen Jenny

I am a former assistant professor (senior research) in the field of Geographic Information Science in the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University. I recently relocated to Melbourne, Australia.

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
