Computers and other technologies have vastly increased our ability to collect data on just about anything you can imagine. However, one major drawback to this is our inability to keep up with the amount of data being produced by these technologies. In many cases, the vast amounts of data being collected are going unused – that is, until more sophisticated software or other data-mining tools can be developed to decipher, apply and use this data in meaningful ways.

Cullen College researchers are developing a low-cost system that can send out warnings when an excavator is digging to close to a pipeline.

Damage to natural gas pipelines is both dangerous and expensive to repair. Much of it is also entirely avoidable.

Excavators cause about 30 percent of pipeline damage incidents. In most of these events, the team working the excavator hadn’t bothered to find out if a natural gas pipeline is nearby before digging, even though there’s a national hotline set up to provide this information 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

A section of Honduran rainforest mapped by NCALM researchers. The center will use the same LiDAR technology to create a much larger map of the Tahoe National Forest.

Researchers with the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering are creating what will likely be the most accurate and detailed map of a forested area the world has ever seen.

Working with archeologists in Belize, NCALM researchers were able to create topographical maps of a Mayan city through dense vegetation. These maps located ruins and features that hadn’t been discovered during years of more traditional archeological exploration and research.

With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the University of Houston’s National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM) has, in the past few years: located ancient ruins, identified levees in danger of failing, charted land erosion following hurricanes, created flood maps for urban areas, found near-drought conditions in seemingly healthy plants, mapped the sea floor, ch

Haluk Ogmen, UH professor of electrical and computer engineering, discusses the UH Center for Neuro-Engineering & Cognitive Science in the latest edition of the 'Images' audio Web cast program. Main research of the center includes brain wave analysis; visual perception, how people see the world around them; and the potential of neuron- implants, small devices imbedded in the brain to record signals and activity.
