How I work with Harvest
Dan O’Neill is part of the University of Maryland Harvest Hub, providing support for Harvest activities and research. He is an intern with Mike Humber and the GEOGLAM Crop Monitor team. He is interested in the potential of remotely sensed imagery to detect and map the effects of insect parasites in Rocky Mountain forests, and is currently working with Dr. Tatiana Loboda to develop a project along those lines as part of the 5-year BS/MS program.
Mr. O’Neill is pursuing his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of Maryland. Dan has played an ancillary role in several ongoing UMD remote sensing projects, including evaluation of crop data from a new Sentinel-2 based land cover map, as well as preparation for accuracy assessment on crop-cover maps in three provinces of Argentina. His work is generally outside the day-to-day operations of the crop monitor, focusing on potential expansions or improvements to maps coverage and accuracy.
