Dr Robert Corner retires
After many years lecturing and researching in the areas of remote sensing and GIS, Dr Robert Corner retired from the Department in August this year.
Robert originally haled from the UK but spent many years working throughout the world in numerous spatial positions (engineering surveying, geophysical exploration, hydrographic surveying) before completing his PhD in geographic information science at Curtin University. The following year, in 2000, he commenced as Senior Lecturer in GIS and remote sensing in the Department of Spatial Sciences.
While at Curtin, Robert taught in the areas of GIS and remote sensing and undertook valued research in the application of remote sensing, GIS and GPS to site-specific agriculture, natural resource mapping and archaeology.
The Department would like to thank Robert for his valuable contribution to the Department during his 16 years as a member of staff, and wishes him all the very best on his retirement.
