My name is Jan Caha. I have studied geoinformatics (bachelor, master, and Ph.D). At the moment, I work as an assistant professor at Mendel University in Brno, where I teach geoinformatics and data interpretation and visualization.

My professional interests include:

  • visibility analyses (as a special case of spatial analyses in GIS)
  • uncertainty modeling and propagation in spatial analysis
  • fuzzy sets, fuzzy logic and fuzzy arithmetic in spatial analyses
  • open-source software and open data
  • data science (with a focus on spatial data)

Most of my articles and other texts are available through Researchgate or ORCID

In my work, I usually do a lot of programming, currently mostly in R and Python. Previously I used Java a lot, mostly because of its libraries focused on spatial data. Some of my work is available through GitHub.
