Sara Fabrikant and me received a grant from the Faculty of Science to develop a new seminar on ‘Lego Mindstorms als Vermittler der Prinzipien der Raumkognition’ (Understanding Principles of Spatial Cognition via Lego Mindstorms).
This endeavor will be funded through the MNF IIL program (Initiative Interaktives Lernen / Innovative Lernformen 2014). Expect to see some Lego bricks crawling through the department in the future…
We currently have an open position for a doctoral researcher (PhD candidate) in project VISDOM. The candidate will work in the areas of information-rich visualization environments, such as three-dimensional (3D) city models, digital globes, and geo-virtual reality applications (or related).
I’ll be presenting a poster on some work Xiaofei Zheng did as his Master project under my supervision at this year’s Conference on Spatial Information Theory. We compared POI coverage in Melbourne of OpenStreetMap and the WhereIs route planner. Accordingly, the poster is entitled: A Comparative Study of POI Coverage between WhereIs and OpenStreetMap.
