G-ECO Remote Sensing Lab

Dr. Anita Simic Milas leads G-ECO RS Lab at BGSU and International SPLIT RS School program. 

Employers of students under supervision of Prof. Simic Milas:

ORNL, Department of Energy, Tennessee
The Ohio State University
Satelytics, Toledo, OH
Ceres Imaging, California
Woolpert, Dayton, OH
U.S. Geological Survey, Kentucky
Bayer – Monsanto, Missouri

Graduate students under supervision of Prof. Anita Simic Milas commonly find employment in the field of remote sensing within 2-3 months after they complete their MSc degree.  

Graduate and undergraduate students use field, satellite, and airborne/UAS/UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle, a.k.a. drone) data to address environmental, geographical, biological and geological issues. 


Students gain knowledge and experience in both field data collection and computer lab research. Graduate and undergraduate students in G-ECO lab monitor status of forest, crops, rocks, water (e.g. Lake Erie) sediments and algal blooms, carbon budget, land use changes, and many other natural and human-induces phenomena. 



Students collaborate with NASA, Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Michigan State University, University of Toronto. They are members of Rapidlasso (LiDAR), BEPS, and LTER groups. Students use various airborne/UAS/UAV, and satellite data such as Landsat, NASA Glenn HSI (hyperspectral) data, Sentinel, MODIS.   

Under the program SPatial LITeracy - SPLIT Remote Sensing  prof. Simic Milas organizes international summer schools. This intensive and advanced 6-day learning program is the best insights into recent remote sensing techniques learned from top international professors and researchers through hands-on sessions and lectures.
