Research Experience for Undergraduates at Elizabeth City State University in Elizabeth City, North Carolina
Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets in Ocean, Marine, and Polar Science

Through improvements in technology, high resolution multi-spectral imaging allowed new capabilities to become available in the remote sensing field.  Hyper-spectral technologies existed in the chemical spectroscopy field to identify minerals by way of active systems (Green et al., 1998). The theory of this paper surrounded the premise that passive systems can provide spectral signatures of objects within images from satellite platforms. Specifically this paper targeted land cover types from the Kittyhawk, North Carolina area. Multi-spectral signals presented up to seven individual readings per pixel. As the decision support system, a neural network was trained to decide the type of land cover based on the band readings. In an effort to determine specific landcover types based on need, ground truthed spectral readings would also be classified using a linear model to convert the readings into approximate satellite readings. The converted readings would then be classified by the trained neural network. A minimal r-squared valued of 86% would be required to be considered a viable method of image classification.


Undergraduate Research Assistant at Jackson State University in Jackson, MS
Android Application Development

Through thorough and careful observations, a teacher realized that students in the class either failed to read the textbook or did not understand what they were reading.  In order to resolve this problem, a team was brought forth to develop Android Applications (Apps) that would assist in teaching students the Java Programming Language through interactive learning techniques using open-source software called Eclipse IDE (integrated development environment).  By writing various sample applications and conducting self-guided research, the team members had to design interactive Android Apps for students, each member focusing on a unique concept.  The concepts of the Android Apps were Arrays, Java Terminology, Files, Classes, and Inheritance and Polymorphism.
