 Research and Teaching

In any age, at any place, research and teaching have and always involve discoveries. Geography has traditionally and for better and worse played a key enabling role. Discoveries can both inspire and challenge us. This website provides an overview of some discoveries in my research and teaching activities in geography, GIScience, cartography, and geospatial visualization along with some indications of what is to come.
