Our paper A Mobile Application for a User-generated Collection of Landmarks, written by Marius Wolfensberger and myself, has been accepted for the upcoming conference on Web and Wireless Geographic Information Systems to be held in Grenoble, France, on May 21st and 22nd.
We are currently looking for two new PhD candidates (doctoral researchers) associated with the newly SNF-funded EMOtive project.

Landmarks are crucial elements of human understanding of and communication about space. And they pose a major challenge for computational systems.
Stephan Winter and I have written a book — Landmarks – GIScience for Intelligent Services — summarizing research on integrating (references to) landmarks into computational systems from the last decade or so. It covers cognitive, conceptual, computational, and communication aspects and argues why producing and understanding landmarks is a necessity for truly intelligent geospatial systems.
The book is published by Springer.
Our paper Up, Down, Turn Around: Assisted Wayfinding Involving Level Changes, written by Stephany Bigler, Annina Brügger, Fiona Utzinger, and myself has been accepted as full paper for this year’s Spatial Cognition conference to be held in Bremen, Germany, in September.
We got a paper accepted at this year’s GIScience conference in Vienna, Austria.
Our paper Wayfinding Decision Situations: A Conceptual Model and Evaluation presents a model for decision point complexity that accounts for the structure of the intersection, the action to be performed as well as instruction complexity, user capabilities and environmental factors. The paper is written by Ioannis Giannopoulos, Peter Kiefer, Martin Raubal, myself, and Tyler Thrash.
