Kelvin Wong


Kelvin studied an MSc in Geographic Information Science at UCL before working as a GIS analyst at WSP Group. His research is focused on 3D GIS and data quality issues with a particular focus on semantic and feature content and descriptions. The research aims to work with Ordnance Survey to launch a national wide 3D GIS dataset. The research is funded by ESPRC and Ordnance Survey focusing on three main areas: 1) usability of 3D GI; 2) applications of 3D GI and; 3) data quality of 3D GI.

A geographer at heart, Kelvin’s interests include data visualisations, cooking and good-looking maps.
