Research Profile

  • I studied continental philosophy and theory, then computer science and GIS. In GIScience I try to find improved visual and knowledge representation approaches for the geographic environment, in order to produce more meaningful geo-applications.

    I am interested in questions regarding:

    • the conditions for a digital representation of place,
    • formal and informal geographic ontologies,
    • the use folksonomies and geo-tagging in a geographic context,
    • the relation between geographic information needs and objects,
    • exploring and exploiting the increasingly large stream of digital geographic information.

    These are the topics of publications and projects.
