Short Bio
My research work concerns the design and the use of (carto)graphic representations for geovisualization. I address knowledge, methods and tools to improve graphic representations (symbolization, stylization and rendering issues) while considering the diversity of users (public, scientists, stakeholders, practitioners) for various uses in geovisualization for urban planning and environment dynamics (participation, decision-making, visual analytics), regarding perceptive, cognitive and emotional dimensions. This implies an interdisciplinary approach between GI sciences, geography, cognitive sciences, human-computer interaction and computer graphics about the notion of geographical spaces.
