(1992) at the Department of Geography, Faculty of
Science Masaryk University in Brno. In 1988 - 2000,
he worked as a lecturer of physical geography,
geomorphology, and GIS at the same department and
actively participated in EU projects dealing with
transfer of GI/GIS technologies, cross-border
cooperation and development of data warehouses
(Panel GI, CREDO, Well GIS). At the beginning of the
21st century he left the academia and spent five
years at the commercial sector working in
telecommunications and as a business representative
for INTERGRAPH. Since 2005, he has been working at
the Institute of Geography of Masaryk University in
Brno. He defended the habilitation thesis in 2012
(Selected aspects of geospatial data uncertainty
visualization) and currently specializes in digital
cartography and geoinformation infrastructure. Dr.
Kubicek cooperates on the international level with
International Cartographic Association commissions
on Use, User and Usability Issues and Cognitive
Issues in Geographic Information Visualization. He
is also acting as a member of the national GeoInfo
Strategy team preparing the document for the
national government. He has over 90 publications
focused on geoinformation and digital cartography.
