Dr. Craig Glennie  
Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering
University of Houston, Houston TX

Assistant Professor


The National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) is a National Science Foundation, Division of Earth Sciences (NSF EAR) facility dedicated to the application of airborne laser swath mapping (ALSM aka LiDAR) by the scientific community. This presentation will give a brief overview of the NCALM facility at the University of Houston. Activities at NCALM pertaining to coastal and fluvial remote sensing will be highlighted, including the use of hyperspectral imagery and bathymetric LiDAR for seagrass mapping, depth determination and turbidity estimation.


Craig Glennie is an Assistant Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Houston, and a Co-­PI in the NSF funded National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM – www.ncalm.org). Dr. Glennie was formerly the Vice President of Engineering for Terrapoint, a LIDAR remote sensing company with offices in Canada and the United States. He has been active in the design, development and operation of kinematic remote sensing systems for 16 years. Dr. Glennie holds a B.Sc. and Ph.D. in Geomatics Engineering, both from the University of Calgary and is a registered Professional Engineer in Alberta, Canada.
