Henry Hochmair

Professor, Geomatics

Henry Hochmair joined the Geomatics program as a faculty member in 2008. His specialty within Geomatics lies in spatio-temporal analysis of geo-data using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), which can be applied to a variety of disciplines. His areas of interest include analyzing people’s travel behavior in multi-modal transportation networks, with a focus on public transportation and cycling, assessing the data quality of free geo-data on the Internet, and describing and predicting the spatial dispersal patterns of invasive termites in South-East Florida.

He is the Geomatics faculty in charge at the Fort Lauderdale Research and Education Center. More information about that campus is available at
