Improved Info Discovery with Recommender Systems

Congratulations to Bernhard Vockner from the Research Studio iSPACE, who today defended his PhD thesis "Enhancing Discovery in Geoportals: Geo-Enrichment, Semantic Enhancement and Recommendation Strategies for Geo-Information Discovery" with distinction!

Mr Vockner successfully presented his innovative work on adding recommender features to geoportals to his PhD committee at Z_GIS. Prof Bartelme (TU Graz) and Prof Car (GUTech Muscat) as discussants confronted the candidate with numerous questions and comments, leading a high level discussion about recent and future developments leading towards 'smarter' and more context aware geoportals.

Key publications within this dissertation are openly available: as a demonstrator prototype with
enhanced information discovery options
