Scott Grant Portrait


Grant Scott is an assistant professor in the Center for Geospatial Intelligence (CGI) and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Missouri. He is also an adjunct assistant professor in computer science. The CGI is an interdisciplinary center that focuses on geospatial intelligence needs critical for national security, homeland defense and military combat support. Scott is currently the principal investigator for a terrain-based geolocation project sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. He has participated in projects sponsored by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Army. His current research is in the area of automated exploitation of high-resolution satellite data, including geospatial database development, imagery feature-extraction algorithm development and distributed automatic imagery processing orchestration architectures. His research interests also include knowledge-driven multidimensional indexing and content-based retrieval in biomedical and geospatial databases. Other research interests include computer vision, pattern recognition, computational intelligence, databases (geospatial, media-content, and traditional), parallel/distributed systems and information theory in support of media database s systems.
