The CartoGIS research group in centred on geographical information, as this underpins both the domain of cartography and geographical information science. A broad multidisciplinarity (computer sciences, archaeology, cognition, sport sciences) characterizes the conducted projects. In these, the group focusses on the use of modern methodologies (e.g. eye tracking, WiFi tracking, UAVs, etc.) and development of innovative technologies (e.g. navigation apps, 3D webGIS, etc.).
Fundamental and applied research is carried out into the following major research lines:
Vervust (2016) — Deconstructing the Ferraris maps (1770-1778): a study of the map production process and its implications for geometric accuracy.
(2016) — Spatiotemporal data as the foundation for an archaeological stratigraphy extraction and management system.
