Dr. Panagiotis Tziachris is a researcher at Soil and Water Resources Institute, Hellenic Agricultural Organization - Demeter in the subject of Geospatial information with new technologies in the agricultural sector. He holds a master's degree in analysis, design and management of spatial data and a doctoral degree in the national spatial data information (NSDI) from the Department of Agronomy & Surveying Engineers of AUTh. He has been working for ELGO-DIMITRA as the head of the Department of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) since 2002, and as a researcher since 2017. At the same time he has been teaching Geographic Information Systems at the TEI of Central Macedonia for 12 years, in International Hellenic University and in American Farm School - Perrotis college for 2 years. His scientific interests are geospatial data management, geostatistics, online GIS (WEB GIS) and machine learning in soil and water resources. He has more than 30 publications in international /national journals and conference proceedings, has been selected as a reviewer in 10 SCI journals and was the guest editor in a special issue of International Journal of Geo-information (IJGI) with the title "Integrating GIS and Remote Sensing in Soil Mapping and Modeling". He has participated in over 30 national and international programs.
