Project Description

Dr. Lecours is an assistant professor of Marine Remote Sensing & Geospatial Analysis at the University of Florida. He completed a B.S. in applied geomatics from the UniversitE de Sherbrooke and received his Ph.D. in geography from Memorial University, where he studied the methods associated with the mapping of deep-water habitats. He worked with spatial data collected with a remotely operated vehicle between 650 and 10,000 feet deep in previously unexplored areas of the ocean. Dr. Lecours conducts cross-disciplinary research using geospatial technologies and spatial sciences. His research program bridges the spatial sciences with the marine sciences by studying ways to improve marine habitat mapping methods through a better integration of spatial concepts, such as spatial scale, autocorrelation, and spatial data quality, in the habitat mapping workflow. It is aimed at developing best practices in the application of geomatics-based marine habitat mapping to ecological and management questions.
