Do you like astronomy, the universe? Great, 'cause we are the astronomers of the information universe. The STKO Lab investigates the role of Space and Time for Knowledge Organization. Our work spans across different scientific disciplines such as geoinformatics & GIScience, cognitive science, computer science, and the broader earth sciences. While our research interests vary, we typically work on topics related to geospatial semantics, ontologies, and the Semantic Web, mobile computing and location-based services, information retrieval and data mining, Linked Data, Big Data, and data-intensive science, similarity and analogy-based reasoning, as well as social networks and volunteered geographic information. A key driver for our work is the question of how to foster the publishing, retrieval, reuse, and integration of data without restricting semantic heterogeneity which we consider a motor of (interdisciplinary) science. We are also very interested in exploratory user interfaces and novel interaction paradigms to browse and navigate unfamiliar data. While we will be adding content to this page over time, you can find up-to-date information about our research, publications, and organized events following the links from the people site.
