James Frew’s interests lie in the emerging field of environmental informatics, a synthesis of computer, information, and Earth sciences. He is interested in information architectures that improve the discoverability, usability, and reliability of distributed environmental information. Trained as a geographer, he has worked in remote sensing, image processing, software architecture, massive distributed data systems, and digital libraries. His current research is focused on geospatial information provenance, science data curation, and applications of array databases, using remote sensing data products as operational test beds. He has affiliate appointments in UCSB’s Geography and Computer Science departments.
