Stephen Fildes is a geospatial scientist with a specialisation in the application of remote sensing technology to both human and natural environments. He initially joined Flinders University in 1993 as a cartographer and GIS analyst and subsequently gained an academic role where he was principally responsible for the development and teaching of remote sensing in the former School of Geography, Population and Environmental Management and the School of the Environment. Stephen was the lead developer and inaugural Director of Studies of the postgraduate programs in GIS between 2008 and 2016.
After 24 years, Stephen recently left Flinders but continues his association with the University as an Adjunct Lecturer in the College of Science and Engineering.
Honours and Awards
I'm an educator in Geospatial Science and its application across a range of human and natural environments with a particular focus on terrestrial remote sensing and digital image analysis. Topic areas include:
More than just an Earth observation and monitoring tool, remote sensing derived information is often integrated with GIS to provide an important decision support system for management of human and natural resources. A primary focus of my teaching is to arm students with skills that synergize remote sensing and GIS technologies across a range of applications and disciplines, and thus arm students with skills of vocational value that meet current and growing needs of potential employers.
