      I studied continental philosophy and theory, then computer science and GIS. In GIScience I try to find improved visual and knowledge representation approaches for the geographic environment, in order to produce more meaningful geo-applications. I am interested in questions regarding: - the conditions for a digital representation of place, - formal and informal geographic ontologies, - the use folksonomies and geo-tagging in a geographic context, - the relation between geographic information needs and objects, - exploring and exploiting the increasingly large stream of digital geographic information. These are the topics of publications and projects available on my website, .
