Major Research Projects:
(1) 2007-2009, ‘Research on spatial data model and integrated data analysis based on alterable grid system’, key project of Chinese Academy of Sciences, project director.
(2) 2005-2008, ‘Investigation of resources and environment in coast zone of China ’, a project founded by State Oceanic Administration People’s Republic of China, project director.
(3) 2004-2006, ‘Spatial data platform for western China’, a project founded by National Natural Science Foundation of China, project director. An integrated database was developed for western China for supporting research and management of western China, the data sets include landuse/landcover, soil, landform, vegetation, water system, and socio-economic data.
(4) 2002-2006, ‘Web-based platform for geo-data sharing network’, a national project of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, sub-project director, in charge of design and development of database platform and data integration.
(5) 1999-2004, ‘Eco-environmental Change and its adjustment in western China’, a national 973 program, sub-project director. A geographic information system for simulation of interactions of mountain-oasis-desert was developed.
(6) 2002-2004, ‘Enhancing China’s Capacity for Carbon Sequestration’, a project funded by Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), project manager in Chinese side, in charge of estimation of Net Primary Productive and ET of China’s forest ecosystem.
(7) 1997-2000, ‘China Resources and Environment Information System and Fast Reporting for Crop Growth’, CAS project, sub-project director, in charge of estimation of crop potential productive by the integration of GIS and remote sensing.
(8) 1996-2001, ‘Soil Erosion Management Geographic Information System-Outreach and Consolidate’, Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) supported program, Main member, in charge of model integration and system interface, and the development of decision support system for the management of small watersheld in Loess Plateau.
(9) 1997-1999, ‘Development and Research on Resources and Environment Database of China’, CAS project, Project director. A national wide 1:4000,000 scale database was developed including 40 data layers such as elevation, landform, landuse, soil, vegetation, administration, river system, lakes, desert, forest, grass land, geology, climate data, agricultural statistics, transportation, and so on. The database is the first data set published and open to the world. The data standardization and normalization are also the objectives of the project.
(10) 1995-1997, Sustainable Development Information System of the Yellow River Delta, UNDP project, sub-project director. A regional information system in the Yellow River Delta was developed to support for the sustainable development planning and management.
(11) 1990-1994, Bangladesh Flood Plain Information System, UNDP/ESCAP project, project co-director. A flood management information system was developed for flood monitoring, flood losses estimation, and flood controlling. The system was transplanted to Space Research and Remote Sensing Ognization of Bangladesh in 1994.
