Justin Braaten

Faculty Research Assistant, Oregon State University


My interests are in assembling, organizing, standardizing, and analyzing massive amounts of data to enhance ecological research. I write custom programs to automate these tasks, as well as produce figures and visualization applications to understand and explore the data.

Much of my work at LARSE has been directed at making the entire Landsat archive more accessible to time series analysis. These efforts have culminated in a software package called LandsatLinkr, which is an automated system for processing large volumes of Landsat imagery and building long spectrally consistent chronologies across MSS, TM, ETM+, and OLI sensor data.

I have a background in GIS, remote sensing, computer programming, web development, and forest ecology.

When I’m not programming, I enjoy adventures in the outdoors, playing guitar, and trout fishing.
