Relevant Academic Labs and Skills
Identification of Suitability for Urban Tree Planting
Created a generalized land use map from a digital map by using ArcMap 10.6 software, differentiating parcels of land that are not occupied by existing structures or physical boundaries such as property lines, buildings, slope, and aspect, to identify suitable areas for tree planting.
Consolidated raw geographical data into an actionable plan by analyzing and buffering vector data, converting data to raster, and reclassifying data layers to visualize areas that meets all suitability criteria in the mid Toronto region.
Registration of Remote Sensing Images
Calibrated geometric distortions of satellite images of Toronto region using ground control points collected from geo-coded images in Geomatica OrthoEngine, increasing accuracy and utility of remote sensing models.
Highlighted key elements by using PCI Geomatica to enhance image raster data through histogram adjustment, which augmented feature recognition and image interpretation.
Investigated the level of vegetation in Toronto by analyzing the visible and infrared light over time to create a leaf area index, which determined the chlorophyll content and the carbon budget of the target study area.
Designing a Database
Designed a relational database specific to a retailer’s specific needs with SQL using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studios software.
Gathered input documents and analyzes business/client data and process problems and determined alternatives for resolving issues or business improvements by normalizing and assigning relationships to entities in the database.
Documented the database by using a data dictionary, providing subsequent users an informative file that describes the planning and space used by the database should they wish to modulate it further in the future.
Designed a database of fire stations within Toronto region, creating SQL scripts that would locate fire stations within a 2km radius of an accident site.
