Sever's archaeological research works in concert with scientists and using data services available through NASA's SERVIR project. Click on the image above to visit the SERVIR website and learn more about the data products and services available.

SERVIR is a regional visualization and monitoring system for Mesoamerica that integrates satellite and other geospatial data for improved scientific knowledge and decision making by managers, researchers, students, and the general public. SERVIR addresses the nine societal benefit areas of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS): disasters, ecosystems, biodiversity, weather, water, climate, oceans, health, agriculture, and energy.

Of Interest:





The Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies, University of Arkansas

"(CAST) focuses on research, education, outreach, and applications in geospatial analysis and modeling, enterprise spatial databases, remote sensing, digital photogrammetry and geospatial interoperability. Much of CAST's research efforts involve new approaches to spatial data and the development of new methodologies for analysis of these data."

Center for Remote Sensing, Boston University

"The Center was established in 1986 as a facility for scientific research in the fields of archaeology, geography and geology. We use satellite images and other data from airborne and ground sensors to study the Earth and its resources, particularly groundwater. This includes the monitoring of environmental changes due to both natural processes and human activities. In 1997, the Center was selected by NASA as a "Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing."

Center for Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis, Rutgers University

"Since 1989, the Grant F. Walton Center for Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis (CRSSA) has been located in a dedicated two-story section of the Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences building on the Cook College campus of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. CRSSA provides students, faculty, staff, and other researchers with state-of-the-art facilities for remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) teaching and research."

Geographic Information Science Center, UC Berkeley

"The fundamental mission of the center is to raise the level of GIS expertise on the entire campus and to stimulate cross disciplinary education, research, and cooperation using these technologies. In turn, the Center seeks to raise the visibility of existing activity, to encourage linkages and to stimulate new research and education at Berkeley in the rapidly developing field of geographic information science."

Center for Space Research - UT Austin

"Research in remote sensing at CSR is an integrated effort involving applications of sensors to environmental problems and development of algorithms for extracting information from remotely sensed data acquired by space based and airborne platforms. Research is often conducted as collaborative projects involving multidisciplinary teams from engineering, biological and geological sciences, geography, computer science, and even classical archeology."

Image Analysis Lab, University of Maine

"The Maine Image Analysis Laboratory is a research facility for the application of satellite remote sensing and geographic information systems to natural resource management. Housed in the Department of Forest Management at the University of Maine, the laboratory maintains facilities for digital image processing, geographic information analysis and airphoto interpretation."
