More COSIT…

Our paper ‘Are We There Yet? Spatial Cognitive Engineering for Situated Human-Computer Interaction‘, authored by myself, Martin Tomko, and Arzu Coltekin, has been accepted for the workshop on Cognitive Engineering for Spatial Information Processes, which will be held with COSIT in Santa Fe, October 2015.

Also, Mark Simpson will present a poster at COSIT on Measuring Space and Behavior: A Visual Summary Approach, which is a joint project of him, Alexander Klippel, Jan Oliver Wallgrün, and me.

“Landmarks” published

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.

I sure know what we did last summer…
