My name is Anita Graser and I am a scientist, open source GIS advocate and data visualization geek. This blog was born in 2010 as a place to record my thoughts and experiences in using open source GIS.

I studied geographic information sciences and am now working with the Mobility department at the Austrian Institute of Technology, Vienna. I am a member of the QGIS PSC, serve on the OSGeo board of directors as well as a member of the Young Scholars Committee of the Laboratory for Geocomputation at Ryerson University, Toronto. In addition, I’m teaching QGIS classes at UNIGIS Salzburg as well as the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt.

In 2013, I published my first book “Learning QGIS” and I develop tools such as the Time Manager plugin for QGIS.
