Spatial data from a new perspective

About me

No, I didn't do that cool graffiti myself. It's on a wall in Chamonix, France.

Moi!

I'm Topi. Nice to meet you!

I'm a geographer (M.Sc.) with a business degree (BBA) from Helsinki, Finland. Besides normal work (Project Specialist in the Ministry of the Enviroment) and normal(ish) hobbies, I'm enthusiastic about geospatial data, visualizing it and learning the latest tricks in modern GIS.

Sounds like a weird and geeky hobby, huh? Well maybe it is, but this page is here so I can share my geekiness with you!

My work has featured for example on the Daily MailIltalehti and on the front page of Reddit.

Want to ask something about a visualization I've made? Do you have some interesting data with coordinates in it and don't know what to do with it? Feel free to contact me!

I Mostly work with:

QGIS - and all the great plugins it has
PostGIS - there are moments in life when shapefile just isn't enough
Python - my scripts might be ugly, but they work
Open data - may it be small, medium or bigish
All FOSS4G - whatever does the trick!
GIMP / Photoshop - (For that extra touch)
