Research

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.).
