About the Author

Michael Leitner is a Professor at the Department of Geography and Anthropology at the Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge (USA). At LSU, he is teaching courses in (advanced) computer cartography, GIS, methods of spatial analysis, aerial photo interpretation, and how GPS collected data can be used for the analysis, modeling, and visualization in a GIS environment. His current research interests include automated map generalization, the visualization of data quality and its effect on spatial decision support, the utilization of GPS for computer mapping, GIS, and spatial analysis, and the development of new techniques (for example, spatial association) for the spatial analysis of crime data. His research has been published in refereed journals and proceedings and has been presented at (inter)national conferences. He also works for the Center of Geoinformatics at the University of Salzburg, Austria.
