Bio

Andy is a mathematician (and a geek/computer scientist) from the Fervent City (Liège, Belgium) who was involved in Geospatial processing (semantics and OGC standards) since his student years and developed on several GIS platforms (f.i. ERDAS Apollo, formelly Ionic's Red Spider suite).
Although geo data are his preference, he extended his domain field to embrace the Big Data technologies and related data analysis processes. Hence, he's now involved with his company (NextLab, http://nextlab.be) in the development of distributed systems and enjoys mining massive heterogeneous data sets.
He's also tutor of university students on master thesis aiming to tackle geo problems using Big Data technologies.
