Rick Bunch, Professor, specializes in the development of methods and concepts that underlie Geographic Information Systems (GIS). He is interested collaborative research that requires the use of GIS and the conceptualization, modeling and analysis of geographic data. His work has included the development of radio wave propagation models and new approaches to incorporating the impacts of man-made and natural features that influence radio waves as they travel across the earth’s surface. He has also conducted research that examines patterns in human behavior through cognitive maps, geographic space and the processes associated with how people learn and synthesize geographic information.
