Andreas Reimer successfully defends his PhD on Cartographic Modeling for Automated Map Generation

Last week our GIScience team member Dr. Andreas Reimer successfully defended his PhD at TU Eindhoven (Promotor: Prof. Dr. Bettina Speckmann, Eindhoven and Co-promotor: Prof. Dr. W.A. Mackaness, Edinburgh).
The topic of the PhD thesis was “Cartographic modelling for automated map generation” and includes a range of fascinating research on cartography, ranging from schematizing and generalizing maps, or modeling chorematic diagrams to caricature of medium scale urban areas, or even to the invention of the new “StenoMaps” approach. Further work also dealt with automated label placement together with his colleague Maxim Rylov.
Much of the achievements have been realized during Andreas’ time in our group in Heidelberg and quite some results can be found in his recent publications.

We congratulate him very heartly for this well deserved result and great achievement and we are happily looking forward to further joint work on improving automated cartography and more! Andi, keep up the good work! 🙂
