Recent projects
AR, 3D print and real size building - ICC 2019:

Short description: This AR visualization aims to compare different buildings presented using augmented reality and 3D print created on the same scale 1:500 with real size building to give the impression of the size of the Eiffel Tower.
TopoVRapp (eye-tracking in VR) - ICC 2019:

Short description: This experiment investigates user preferences for 2D/3D urban geovisualizations. It involves an original Topographic Immersive Virtual Environment (TopoIVE) application of a fictitious city that was derived from Polish state 1:10,000 topographic data.
AR CartoInfoApp - 2018:

Short description: This project aimed to create an Augmented Reality App promoting the course "Cartography and Geomatics" taught since 2018 at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań Poland.
MapaRCiWN - 2018:

Short description: The aim of the project was to create a nationwide map presenting information gathered from the register of real estate prices and values (RREPV).
Spatio-temporal VRapp - ICC 2017:

Short description: The aim of this Google Cardboard Immersive Virtual Reality app is to present the spatio-temporal changes of land use in 4 different periods of time.
