"This geospatial stuff is going to get bigger, faster than anybody thinks."
Kevin Kelly, former WIRED editor

"Maps become a user interface to many things [...]
Geography is another way, a different way, to organise information."
Financial Times 21.5.2008

"Essentially, all models are wrong but some are useful."
George Box


Professional development

Research projects

Teaching and supervision

  • Foundations of Spatial Information
  • Advanced Topics in GIScience
  • Spatial Information Research Projects
  • PhD (on request):
    I am offering to supervise research projects in the area of spatial human-computer interaction, spatio-temporal data mining, geographic information retrieval, intelligent transportation systems and in the general area of geographic information science (the 'science about GIS'). This means I am not supervising projects using GIS for a particular study applying some GIS analysis (the 'science with GIS').
