Yue Tian-Xiang is a Professor State Key Laboratory of Resources and Environment Information System, Head of Department for Ecological and Environmental Informatics, Institute of Geographical Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chair of Geo-informatics, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. He has been working as a leading professor at State Key Laboratory of Resources and Environment Information System, Institute of Geographical Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Since 1986, he has innovatively been developing the high accuracy and speed method (HASM) for surface modelling to give solutions to error problem, slow-computational-speed problem and multi-resolution problem which long troubled surface modelling. He has been successfully applied to simulating surfaces of elevation, soil properties, and changes of biodiversity and ecosystem services, climate change and driving forces of the changes as well as analysing ecosystem responses to climatic change. In all these applications, HASM produced more accurate results than the classical methods. In 2016,a Fundamental Theorem of Earth Surface Modelling (FTESM) is created on the basis of development of HASM and its applications in last30 years.
