Prof. Dr. Sara Fabrikant

Chair | Dr. Sara Fabrikant, Professor and Head of the Geographic Information Visualization and Analysis Unit, Department of Geography, University of Zurich, Switzerland.

Within the International Cartographic Association Sara Fabrikant has previously been a pro-active member of the Geovis Commission (and its predecessor) since about 1999, focusing specifically on cognitive issues within the Commission's research agenda. Her research and teaching interests lie in geographic information visualization and visual analytics (geovis), GIScience and cognition, graphical user interface design and evaluation, including dynamic cartography. She publishes in a variety of GIScience/geovis related journals and is currently a member of the Editorial Boards of the Annals of the Association of American Geographers, Cartographic Perspectives, Cartographica, Computers Environment and Urban Systems, Journal of Spatial Information Science, Revue Internationale de Géomatique, and Transactions in GIS, in addition to her Program Committee memberships for various international GIScience/geovis related conferences (e.g., GIScience, AGILE, COSIT, InfoVis (UK), etc.). She has been the conference co-organizer and program co-chair of the GIScience 2010 conference. Other service includes memberships of the Association of American Geographers, the International Cartographic Association's Commission on Geovisualization, the US NSF Spatial Intelligence and Learning Center Network (SILC), and the national cartographic societies (ICA members) in the US, Canada, and Switzerland.

Dr. Amy Griffin

Co-Chair | Dr. Amy Griffin, Senior Lecturer, School of Physical, Environmental and Mathematical Sciences Research, University of New South Wales-ADFA, Australia.

Amy Griffin has been an active member of the Geovis commission since 2003, focusing on understanding how map readers use geovisualizations to think about spatial problems. Her research interests lie in the areas of understanding the cognitive and perceptual processes that geovisualization use draws upon, the human-centered design of geovisualization systems, and developing understandings of how people move through space and time, often with the help of geovisualization tools. She has published in a wide range of cartography and geography journals and currently a member of the Cartographica, Cartographic Perspectives, and Journal of Maps editorial boards. She is also a member of the executive board of the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS) and the business manager for the Australian and New Zealand Map Society (ANZMapS).
