Jason is co-chair of the ICA Commission on GeoVisualization and was lead editor of Exploring Geovisualization. He has been at the forefront of developments in exploratory interactive cartography for nearly 20 years.

His initial ideas were embodied in the cartographic data visualizer - cdv - which appears in the Milestones in the History of Thematic Cartography, Statistical Graphics and Data Visualization and panoraMap which linked geo-referenced digital photography to maps and exploratory data analysis.

Jason was papers chair for IEEE Information Visualization in 2012 & 2013 and is chair of the 2014 conference in Paris where he is also involved in organising a workshop and a bike ride.

He has given keynotes at the AutoCarto, GISRUK and GIScience conferences. He was made a National Teaching Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy in 2005.
