My PhD-research concentrated on the use of maps in the exploration of geographic data. For more information and demonstrations of the test sessions: please refer to my research pages.
Use and user issues are the fields in geo-information processing I am most interested in. I am Chairman of the Commission on Use and User Issues of the International Cartographic Association (ICA). I am also a member of the ICA commission on Maps and the Internet where I am dealing with the use and users of web maps in particular.
