Dr. Pete Bunting is a senior lecturer within the Institute of Geography and Earth Sciences (IGES; http://www.aber.ac.uk/iges) at Aberystwyth University. He joined the Institute in 2004 where he undertook his Ph.D. and in 2007 received a lectureship in remote sensing. Prior to joining the Institute he undertook his undergraduate degree in Computer Science, also at Aberystwyth University.

Dr. Bunting's research has generated a lot of software much of this software available as publically and freely available open source software projects. Specifically, the Remote Sensing and GIS software library (RSGISLib; http://www.rsgislib.org) provides a wide range of tools and algorithms for large scale processing of remotely sensed imagery. For example, image processing including automatic image-to-image registration, image segmentation, classification, change detection and application of 6S atmospheric correction coefficients.

Dr. Bunting has also recently introduced the new KEA image file format, which allows for more efficient storage of image data and the inclusion of attribute table data within the image data. The KEA format has been integrated within the GDAL software and has already been used within national mapping programs such and New Zealand.

The Sorted Pulse Data software Library (SPDLib; http://www.spdlib.org) has been implemented for advanced LiDAR processing, including full waveform processing and includes a new pulse based file format that corresponds with the LiDAR acquisition process.
