Dr. Johnson joined GEM in 2012 having been a postdoctoral fellow at McGill University. His interests are in the application and evaluation of geospatial technologies, especially agent-based models (ABM), geographic information systems (GIS), and the Geospatial Web 2.0 (Geoweb), for decision support systems. Recent projects have focused on community development, the inclusion of volunteered geographic information in governance, crowdsourced planning support systems and web-harvesting on-line content.
