Faculty Positions Open: GREL is actively on the lookout for qualified PhD faculty in RS & GISc. If you are interested to apply to be part of this vibrant faculty, just contact Dr. Rizwan Bulbul or Dr. Waqas Qazi.


(8th March, 2017) GREL faculty member Dr. Waqas A. Qazi won a SATHA Innovation Award for technology innovation during the 6th Invention to Innovation Summit at the University of the Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan.


(Feb. '17) GREL faculty and students' research on studying upwelling and physical oceanography in the Arabian Sea was higlighted and presented as a poster at the 10th Coastal Altimetry Workshop, held in Florence, Iraly. This research is being led by Dr. Waqas A. Qazi, and is supported by IFS and JAXA


(16-01-17) GREL is launching the 2nd Workshop on Workshop on Data Analysis Techniquesfor Remote Sensing & Geographic Information Science using MATLAB . This course will be led by Dr. Waqas A. Qazi, from 30th Jan. - 3rd Feb., 2017. Detailed course info and registration is available here. Last date for registration: 18th Jan., 2016.


(11-12-16) The ISNET / NARSS Seminar & Hands-on Training Workshop on Earth Remote Sensing with SAR has been successfully held at NARSS (National Authority for Remote Sensing & Space Sciences), Cairo, Egypt, from 27th Nov. - 1st Dec. The hands-on training workshop was conducted by GREL faculty member Dr. Waqas A. Qazi.


(20-10-16) Dr. Waqas A. Qazi delivered a guest talk at Dept. of Meteorology, COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, Islamabad, on "SAR Remote Sensing Applicatons" during their monthly seminar series.


(04-07-16) GREL faculty member Dr. Rizwan Bulbul and MS student Ahsan Abbas recently completed formal scientific and technical review of the book "GeoProcessing with Python." This included testing the code, identifying / removing bugs, and identifying / installing required libraries.


(23-06-16) GREL is launching the 2nd Summer School on Earth Remote Sensing with Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). This course will be led by Dr. Waqas A. Qazi, from 1-5th Jan., 2016. Detailed course info and registration is available here. Last date for registration: 20th July, 2016.


(12-05-16) Dr. Majid Nazeer, recent PhD graduate from Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics, at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong, will be delivering a guest talk on Atmospheric Correction of Remote Sensing Imagery and Coastal Water Quality Applications at GREL Lab, tomorrow, 13th May, from 10:30 AM to 12 PM.


(22-04-16) Forest ground survey was conducted by GREL team from 18-20th April for undergrad Final Year Project. The survey team was led by Dr. Waqas A. Qazi and Mr. Naeem Shahzad, and included 1 MS and 2 BS students. The survey was conducted in Ghora Ghali forest, Murree Forest Division, with the support of Forest Dept., Govt. of the Punjab. Plot survey methodology was used and tree DBH / height were measured. These surveyed plots will be used for regression modeling with remote sensing data for forest AGB estimation.


 (23-12-15) GREL is launching its 1st Workshop on Workshop on Data Analysis Techniquesfor Remote Sensing & Geographic Information Science using MATLAB . This course will be led by Dr. Waqas A. Qazi, from 25-29th Jan., 2016. Detailed course info and registration is available here. Last date for registration: 18th Jan., 2016.


 (27-11-15) ESA has accepted a Cat-1 research proposal by Dr. Waqas A. Qazi to study and analyse landslides and slope stability in KPK post-2005 Kashmir earthquake. ESA has granted a quote of 180 SAR images from Envisat ASAR for the research. As part of this research, repeat-pass InSAR processing will be developed and implemented in-house at GREL.
