A Comparison of Location Search UI Patterns on Mobile Devices

A Comparison of Location Search UI Patterns on Mobile Devices

My name is Sebastian Meier, I am a research associate and lecturer at the Interaction Design Lab at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences, working on data visualization. Currently I am writing my PhD thesis in the field of geovisualizations. I am a fellow of the DFG post graduate programme 1539 on visibility and visualization. I am interested in the way people use visualizations for knowledge construction and the effects of new interfaces and mass data visualizations on society and culture.
