Coming from a geodetic background, I am fascinated by the automation in mapping, thus in linking cartography and computational methods. I have been active in national societies and their international counterparts for a long time – mainly in cartography and photogrammetry, i.e. ICA and ISPRS. These societies are my scientific home – they have enabled my career and stimulated my research, for which I am very grateful. I am deeply convinced that research networks in scientific societies like ours are a prerequisite for advancing science and strengthening the research capacity – bringing together a world-wide expertise. I am looking forward to foster joint activities with sister societies and to further increase the attractiveness of ICA through its activities.
