Dr. Titus Tienaah a lecturer at the Geomatic Engineering Department, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). His research focus are Geographic Information Systems (GIS), spatial data structures, spatial big data analytics, computer vision, and artificial intelligence. Before joining KNUST, he worked as a geospatial software engineer at Resson Inc. (Fredericton, New Brunswick), a predictive data analytics company that combines computer vision, machine learning, and big data analytics to provide farmers with actionable insights using their field imagery collected from drones and ground-based systems. At Reason, he developed algorithms for tracking plant growth, plant count, plant spacing, pest detection, and localization of anomalies using georeferenced raster datasets.
He also worked as a professional consultant for developing training modules for Natural Resources Canada’s Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation (CCMEO) in collaboration with the University of Calgary. The training modules include learning the Python programming language, using Python for geospatial data processing, using Python to perform spectral analysis, and parallel processing using Cloud Optimized GeoTIFFs (COG) from a SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog (STAC). Training modules developed will serve as training resources for the staff of CCMEO and technical personnel of some first nation communities in Canada.
Dr. Tienaah has received Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering degrees from the University of New Brunswick (Ph.D., MScE) and a Geodetic Engineering degree from KNUST (BSc). He also has a diploma in university teaching from the University of New Brunswick.
