About

Overview

Jo a Professor of Visual Analytics at the giCentre, where he designs, builds and applies data visualization software to analyse patterns in complex datasets. He has particular interests in visualization and analysis of sustainable transport and narrative in visual analytic design.

His background is in Geographic Information Science and terrain analysis, and has, since 1990 been developing new methods and software that bridge the GI Science and Data Visualization domains.

His has been a member of the organising and programme committees of a number of international conference series in GI Science and visualization including IEEE Infovis and VAST, Eurovis, GIScience, Spatial Accuracy and Geomorphometry. He has given keynote talks at a number of venues ranging from GeoComputation to TEDx.
