Profile

Antoni is a senior lecturer in Geographical Information Science at the School, and is the director of the BAppSc course in Geographical Information Systems (GIS). He was previously in the Department of Information Science from 2001 to 2008 and before that working as a coastal / marine GIS Analyst at Plymouth Marine Laboratory in the UK. He has also worked as a biometrics data manager for a pharmaceutical company and as a photogrammetric consultant. He completed his BSc in Geographical Science in 1993, an MSc in GIS in 1994 and his PhD (on the application of holistic expert systems to integrated coastal zone management) in 2001.

Teaching

Research Interests

Geographical Information Science, particularly geovisualization and cartography

  • Visualization in space and time, including the comic strip as a spatiotemporal representation, time geography-based displays and multitemporal viewsheds
  • Geospatial Interfaces, including Geographic Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and hybrid visual art / map
  • Application of geovisual analytics and /or spatial analysis to geographic data (e.g. volunteered crime data, local spatial fishing knowledge, other marine and coastal applications
  • Computational approaches to cartography, including multi-scale model-based generalisation (circle tree) and use of allied technologies such as agents and expert systems
