Ariel Calle

Ariel has approximately 5 years of experience with Advanced GIS systems and analysis. A recent addition to the GroundPoint Team, Ariel brings a strong background in remote sensing applications and risk-based geospatial analysis. He has project-based experience working with NASA evaluating the factors influencing Human-Elephant Conflict in sub-Saharan Africa along with correlating the risks of human diseases such as dengue and leishmaniasis to deforestation and mining expansion in the Peruvian Amazon.

Ariel worked with the New York Museum of Natural History examining historical unexploded ordnance (UXO) data in Southeast Asia and studied the effects of glyphosate-based herbicides used in modern agricultural practices while at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He gained valuable hands-on experience as a graduate assistant supporting the Global Fin Print program in evaluating the abundance and diversity of sharks and rays in the Tropical West Atlantic using Baited Remote Underwater Videos (BRUVs). He is currently supporting Population At Risk (PAR) analysis for the NYS Canal Corporation in evaluating the risk of various canal failure scenarios, while supporting GroundPoint’s overall mapping mission with the Pix4D suite of tools focused on photogrammetric data processing and extraction.
