Dr. Amy Griffin

Chair | Dr. Amy Griffin, Senior Lecturer, Geospatial Science, School of Science, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia.

Amy Griffin is a founding co-chair of the CogVis commission. Her research focuses on understanding how map readers use geovisualizations to think about spatial problems. Her research interests lie in the areas of understanding the cognitive and perceptual processes that geovisualization use draws upon, the human-centered design of geovisualization systems, and developing understandings of how people move through space and time, often with the help of geovisualization tools. She has published in a wide range of cartography and geography journals, is currently a member of several editorial boards, and editor of Cartographic Perspectives. She is a former president of the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS).


Dr Pyry Kettunen

Co-Chair | Dr. Pyry Kettunen, Research Group Leader, Finnish Geospatial Research Institute, National Land Survey, Finland

Pyry Kettunen acts as the leader of the Geospatial Representation and Interaction research group in the FGI. His research interests concentrate on building empirically founded knowledge of human interaction with cartographic and geovisual presentations, and on creating accordingly designed geospatial applications. He has published in central cartographic and geoinformatics journals and made research visits to the Paris Descartes (3 mos) and University of California Santa Barbara (6 mos) universities.



Associate Professor Petr Kubicek Co-Chair | Associate Professor Petr Kubíček, Department of Geography, Masaryk University, Czechia

Petr Kubíček is a leading member of the Laboratory on Geoinformatics and Cartography, Masaryk University, and represents a much larger interdisciplinary team executing interdisciplinary research in the field of cognitive issues in geographic information visualization and map user research. Since 2005, he has worked at the Institute of Geography at Masaryk University in Brno, where he specializes in digital cartography and geospatial solutions in crisis management. He is currently the Head of the Department of Geography and Vice-Chair of the Czech Association for Geoinformation.
