Thomas J. Lampoltshammer is a trained technician in the field of information and communication technologies. He received his diploma degree in Engineering from the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences as well as his MSc in Embedded and Intelligent Systems from Halmstad University in 2011. At the moment he is a PhD student at the Doctoral College GIScience, at the Department of Geoinformatics - Z_GIS, at the Paris-Lodron-University Salzburg. He is also currently working as a research associate at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences (SUAS), where he received his diploma degree. He has a strong background in adaptive software systems, e-health and cloud technologies. In addition to that, he is well experienced in embedded systems and sensor networks. His main research activities regarding his PhD topic are in the field of the natural language control of data mining in geospatially referenced information. He is also involved in teaching at SUAS regarding undergraduate classes and tutorials in Software Engineering as well as supervising Bachelor and Master R&D projects.
Research Cluster: Spatialization, Media and Society
PhD Thesis Topic: Natural language control of geospatially referenced information for GIS
Today, many of these former limitations have been overcome and various aspects of the Digital Earth are used by millions of users on a daily basis. In addition to that, the expectations of non-expert users regarding system capabilities are ever increasing and as a consequence, scientists have to provide even more sophisticated concepts and technologies for allocating reliable and openly accessible data.
