Professor Fraser's particular areas of research interest in geomatics are in digital close-range photogrammetry, industrial measurement systems and the metric exploitation of high-resolution satellite imagery. He also serves as a Program Science Director of the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information and he is a Director of Photometrix Pty Ltd.

Prof. Fraser is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering and the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS), and he is an Honorary Member of The Remote Sensing and Photogrammetric Society of the UK.

In recognition of his academic and professional work he has earned numerous international awards including the Fairchild Photogrammetric Award, Outstanding Technical Achievement, Talbert Abrams, Wild Heerbrugg and Bausch & Lomb Awards, all from ASPRS; and the President's Medal, President's Prize and the E.H.Thompson Award from the Remote Sensing & Photogrammetry Society.

Prof. Fraser has a number of active international research and industry collaborations, and he serves as a consultant to industry in Australia, Japan, the US and Europe. He also serves on the Editorial Boards of four of the leading international journals dealing with photogrammetry and remote sensing and he has authored more than 320 publications.
