About the talk
André Bruggmann – How to arouse user curiosity and enable decision-making through spatial information visualization
Analyzing and interpreting spatial information is key to many important strategic (business) decisions; for example, in determining where a new point-of-sale location should be opened to reach as many new clients as possible.
In my talk, I will present how we at Crosswind arouse customer curiosity by using spatial information analysis and visualization, thereby supporting customers in making such decisions.
In addition, I will show how interactive visual displays have stimulated historians’ curiosity about space, as part of my PhD project. Through interacting with the visualizations, they were presented with a new/spatial perspective, allowing them to gain new insights into the history of Switzerland.
