September 2009- September 2010 MSc in Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis -
University of Southampton, Department of Geography, United Kingdom
Modules included Core Skills GIS, Advanced GIS, GIS for Environmental Management, GIS for Analysis of Health, Calibration and Validation of Earth Observation Data, Topographic Data Analysis Techniques and Applications
The Project for the MSc Thesis was related with the evaluation of the possibility of detecting illegal deforestation activities with use of time series of vegetation index derived from MERIS data (MERIS Terrestrial Chlorophyll Index-MTCI) in the country of Democratic Republic of Congo.
The completion of this project involved:
A Data Pre-processing stage which involved the creation of time series sequel
The Correction and Smoothing of the data, which involved the correction of the data regarding its various flaws
Feature extraction which involved the extraction of desired target pixels which indicate forested and deforested areas and the study of their MTCI profiles.
The results of this study were based on visual and statistical interpretation
September 2001 - June 2007 BSc in Marine Sciences - University of the Aegean Department of Marine Sciences, Mytilene, Lesvos Island, Greece
Modules included Core Skills GIS, Advanced GIS applications in the Marine Environment, Remote Sensing, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Chemistry.
BSc Degree Thesis was related with the detection of land use/land cover in the greater area of Athens with use of Satellite Images from the sensor Landsat ETM+ 7 and Corine Land Cover Database.
The completion of this project involved:
The application of an Unsupervised classification on the satellite data
The verification and clarification of the extracted results/classes with the use of Corine Land Cover Database.
Outside interests include a major interest in music, studies in classical guitar, vinyl collection and basketball.

I recently finished my MSc Degree in Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis at the University of Southampton. The composition of the Modules in this Degree was exclusively related with the use of GIS and Remote Sensing Technologies in a vast field of Scientific Interest fields closely linked with the Environment and Environmental Management. This has provided me with knowledge on a wide range of applications including extended utilisation of GIS tools. My BSc Degree was in Marine Sciences but again I focused on GIS and Remote Sensing Technologies and how these could be used in Marine Environmental Applications.
Through Modules like Core Skills GIS, which I registered in my BSc and MSc Degree, I obtained a thorough understanding of GIS theory and practise, while by registering to Modules like Advanced GIS, Advanced GIS Applications in the Marine Environment, GIS for Environmental Management and GIS for Analysis of Health I managed to use and practice GIS in a variety of Scientific Fields, expanding my knowledge and experience to a more Advanced Level and comprehend the unlimited potentials that GIS can provide.
During my studies and Dissertations I made extensive use of MS-Office and especially Excel, in order to manage and process data, create graphs and multiple other tasks, including the creation and maintenance of Data Bases. I am experienced in handling large amounts of data and pay attention to details. Additionally I received from the Department of Marine Sciences a diploma that certifies the knowledge in the field of Computer Science and Computer Operation and is equivalent with ECDL.
Moreover due to the nature of my Degrees I am experienced in handling multiple tasks and working to tight deadlines. I am experienced in organising my tasks and work intensively on their completion.
From my CV you will see that I have the necessary skills and experience in the fields of Remote Sensing and GIS and may I draw particular attention to the following:
MSc Degree in Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis (School of Geography)
Good working knowledge and thorough understanding of GIS
Major interest in the environment and environmental issues
Good numeracy and literacy
Computer literate in MS-Office
Experience of using and maintaining a database and organising tasks
Able to work effectively in a team, both large or small
Very energetic and enthusiastic
I can be available for interview at any time and look forward to hearing from you.

Its holiday time and that means its time for Santa Trackers from the likes of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and Google. At one time a small footnote to the season, this years trackers host games, fighter jets and somewhere in there, a bit of education for children and adults. What can the Santa Trackers teach us?
