Professor Stephan Winter

Stephan Winter is Professor for Spatial Information Science in the Department of Infrastructure Engineering at The University of Melbourne. He is discipline leader in Geomatics, coordinator of the Melbourne Research Cluster on Urban Connectedness, and engaged in MSSI’s Future Cities theme.

Spatial information influences the vast majority of decisions people make, he explains — from whether or not to build a tunnel under Melbourne to where to buy coffee — and yet computing spatial information poses some serious and long-term challenges.

Key areas of research are:

  •         connected cities,
  •         human orientation,
  •         wayfinding and navigation,
  •         intelligent transportation systems, and
  •         spatial cognitive engineering.
