Maria Jesus Lobo

I am a research scientist (CRCN développement durable) at GeoVis team at IGN . I am currently working on augmented reality for urban visualization. Before, I was a postdoc at Devi Team working with Christophe Hurter, at ENAC where I studied new visualization and interaction techniques for spatial data, in particular LIDAR data and flow data. I did my PhD in the ILDA (Interacting with Large DAta) team under the supervision of Caroline Appert and Emmanuel Pietriga. My thesis studied interactive transitions for map applications, in order to combine different maps and data layers into one representation.
