Ayman F. Habib
Professor of Civil Engineering
Ayman Habib obtained his Ph.D. and M.S. in geodetic science from The Ohio State University and an M.S. and B.S. in civil engineering from Cairo University in Cairo, Egypt. He was a faculty member in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Geodetic Science at The Ohio State University and the Department of Geomatics Engineering at the University of Calgary, Canada, from 1997 to 2002 and 2002 to 2014, respectively.
Habib’s research spans the fields of terrestrial and aerial mobile-mapping systems, modeling the perspective geometry of non-traditional imaging scanners, automatic matching and change detection, automatic calibration of low-cost digital cameras, object recognition in imagery, LiDAR mapping, integrating photogrammetric data with other sensors/datasets (e.g., GPS/INS, GIS databases, multi- and hyper-spectral sensors, and LiDAR), low-cost UAV-based 3D mapping, and applications of photogrammetric and laser scanning systems for non-mapping activities.
He has authored more than 300 publications and has been serving as an editorial board member for several international journals. His research work in the area of digital camera calibration and stability analysis has been commercialized and implemented by government and industrial organizations in the United States, Canada, Korea, Brazil, South Africa, and Taiwan.
