In a world of connected streams of real-time data, new ways of representing the world around us have emerged. Join us with University of Waterloo Associate Professor of Geography, Peter Johnson, as he discusses Francois Quevillon’s Dérive, an interactive work that uses open environmental data sources to create real-time 3D representations of urban and rural areas around the globe.
Peter Johnson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Management at the University of Waterloo. His research seeks to understand how governments, citizens, and private companies share information through geospatial technology. As location-based technology untethers communications from the traditional spaces of home, work, and play, there is a vital need for critical reflection. His research evaluates the affordances that geospatial technology creates for communications and information sharing, identifying emergent adoption challenges and constraints.
