Interaction with geospatial data

Johannes Schöning


My research interest lies at the interaction between human-computer interaction (HCI) and geoinformatics. I am interested in developing new methods and novel user interfaces to navigate through spatial information. This article will give a brief overview on my past and current research topics and streams. Generally speaking, geography is playing an increasingly important role in computer science and also in the field of HCI ranging from social computing to natural user interfaces (NUIs). At the same time, research in geography has focused more and more on technology-mediated interaction with spatiotemporal phenomena. By bridging the two fields, my aim is to exploit this fruitful intersection between those two and develop, design and evaluate user interfaces that help people to solve their daily tasks more enjoyable and effectively.
