Our group analyses mobile behaviour in geographic and digital space in the context of digital transformation. We study when, where, and how people use mobile map apps and geographic information displays while moving around in smart, sensor, and data-driven cities. We aim to guide the attention of mobile and digital citizens toward relevant geographic information for affective, effective, and efficient decision-making and space-time behaviour in everyday activities. We devise solutions for integrating multisource, multivariate, real-time data streams into adaptive mobile maps for informed decision-making and space-time behaviour.

With our research, we intend to support the intelligent mobility of users with different backgrounds, needs, and abilities, building on smart digital infrastructures. To address our research questions in this interdisciplinary field, we employ, among others, methods from quantitative geography, geovisualisation, AI (machine learning, predictive analytics, ambient intelligence), and HCI. We conduct field studies, ambulatory assessments, and ecological momentary assessments to gain ecologically valid insights about the usage, utility, usability, effectivity, and efficiency of mobile maps.
