Geovisualization is an integral part of geoinformation science. Over the past several years a range of multi-dimensional geovisualization technologies have been developed and introduced to a range of users and applications. Mobile devices, touchscreen computers, and semi- and fully-immersive environments allow real-time, dynamic, and fully-interactive visualization of spatial-temporal information.
Dr. Fuhrmann’s research focuses on
How cognitive loads, and thus spatial learning, thinking, and decision-making, can be best enhanced through modern geovisualization techniques,
Investigating how social media content can be utilized to better understand public opinion about health related issues, and
The development, usability, and usefulness of “true” three-dimensional display he environments for time-critical missions, decision-making, and the interaction with these geovisualizations.
