We have won a project in this year’s SNF application round:
Vision to visualization: Improving computational and human performance with highly realistic three-dimensional geographic visualizations by means of biomimicry (VISDOM)
Arzu Coltekin is the lead investigator; Sara Fabrikant and me are a co-investigators.
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.
See you all in Scarborough!
