Profile

Antoni is an associate professor in Geographical Information Science at the School, and is the director of the Geographical Information Systems (GIS) degrees (BAppSc, MAppSc, MSc). 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 diagrams of complex trajectories, time geography-based displays and representation of uncertainty
  • Geospatial Interfaces, including Geographic Augmented Reality (e.g. tangible sandbox interface to terrain data) and Geographic Virtual Environments
  • Investigating artistic representations for space-time data (comic strips), Big Data (fractals) and interfaces (hybrid art-maps)
  • Application of geovisual analytics and /or spatial analysis to geographic data (e.g. active transport / health, crime, agroecology, coastal applications)
  • Cognition and spatial data display, cognitive maps, metaphors and spatialisations
  • Computational approaches to cartography, including multi-scale model-based generalisation (circle tree) and use of allied technologies such as agents and expert systems
