My Mission

Put the fun back in fundamentalism.


Founded the Geo Academie, based a strong belief that education in geo-information is more than ‘knowing which buttons to push’. Sees developments like open source software, neographers and crowdsourcing as the most promising in years and recognizes the challenge that it provides to traditional geo-information science.

Currently working for B3Partners, makers of Tailormap, in order to make users of FOSS successful.

Organizer of the (only?) Maptime Summercamp @GeoFort. Doing voluntary work for MissingMaps. Rotarian. Husband, father, cat owner. Guitar and (double) bass player. Quite forgetful.

Organiser of Dutch FOSS4G and QGIS events, co-founder of the Dutch QGIS User Group.
