giCentre at GIScience


giCentre researchers attended the Eighth International Conference on Geographic Information Science at the Vienna University of Technology. This bi-annual forum is the premier venue for research in the discipline.

An ICA Commission on GeoVisualization Workshop on GeoVisual Analytics had well received contributions from PhD candidate Sarah Goodwin and Dr Cagatay Turkay whose approaches allow analysts to interactively assess the effects of scale as they explore multiple attributes of geographic locations.

The meeting involved a touching tribute to giCentre friend and colleague Professor Peter Fisher who passed away suddenly in May. Pete received a minute's applause. Jason Dykes also paid tribute to Pete, who supervised Jason's PhD, in a keynote lecture in which he described giCentre approaches to creative cartography that combine Information Visualization and more traditional cartography.
