Paulo Raposo

I’m a cartographer and GIS specialist. My research interests are mainly in map generalization and multiple representation, cartographic design, geometry, and GIS programming.

My current projects include work on digital elevation model (DEM) generalization and terrain analysis, flow map generation, and augmented reality cartography. If you are a potential graduate student interested in working on any of these or related topics, please feel free to contact me.

My work has focussed on algorithm and visualization design, and I usually treat these two as coupled together tightly, so that outputs are well-suited to symbolization. My projects usually result in open-source code, frequently in either Python or Java, meant for both academics and production cartography.
