Welcome

 

This is the home page of the Human-Environment Modeling and Analysis (HEMA) Laboratory in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University. The purpose of the lab is to support research in the area of coupled natural-human systems through the development and use of spatial models. We take a multidisciplinary approach to studying natural resource problems, combining expertise in GIS, remote sensing, simulation modeling and natural resource management.

 

You can find information here on the models, tools and approaches that are being used to study human-environment interactions. In addition, you can find descriptions of funded projects, people working on the projects, lists of publications and presentations that have been produced in the lab.

 

If you are looking for a former student, you can find them either on our People drop down list or at our FaceBook page.

 

 

HEMA is housed in the College of Agriculture's Department of Forestry and Natural Resources, in Rooms 204, 205 and 206.

Message from the Director  
Welcome to the Human-Environment Modeling and Analysis Laboratory's main web site. We are excited that you are here visiting and learning about what we are doing. The laboratory is currently funded to work on several projects where land use change modeling and analysis is central to our understanding of how humans impact the environment. We work with geographic information systems, spatial models, remote sensing and other spatially explicit information. Our laboratory is "state of the art" containing high performance computing infrastructure and the very latest analysis and modeling software.
