Dr. David FAIRBAIRN
Dr. David Fairbairn comes from the UK.
Since 1978 he has been employed by the Newcastle University in the North of England, teaching cartography and GIS to geomatics students, and over a long time has seen the discipline of cartography changing greatly. A wide variety of geospatial data handling issues have been of research interest over that period, including the structuring and presentation of terrain data, the quantification and use of indices of map complexity, the effective visualisation of map designs, the linkage between mapping and navigation, and, currently, issues connected to crowdsourcing and cartographic requirements for SDIs.
Long-standing membership of Council and committees of his national cartographic association, the British Cartographic Society, was a stepping stone to service in the International Cartographic Association as a Vice President (2003-2007) and as a Secretary-General & Treasurer (2007-2011).
