Dr. Sarawut Ninsawat received the Doctoral degree at Osaka City University (OCU), Japan. He was a Postdoctoral researcher at National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Tsukuba, Japan. Currently, he is Associate Professor in Remote Sensing program, Depart of ICT, School of Engineering and technology, Asian Institute of Technology. His research interests are application of Remote Sensing and GIS for natural resource management, developing Web Mapping Application especially focus on the implementation of standard OGC Web services (OWS) framework such as WCS, WFS, WPS and SOS using Open Source Software solutions. Additionally, the various Machine Learning were developed to utilize the location information and time series earth observation data for agriculture and
