Welcome from Britta Ricker

I am presently an assistant professor at Utrecht University in the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development. Through my research, I am experimenting with new, low-cost, accessible technologies in an effort to enhance existing map making techniques. Currently, my research focuses on monitoring and communicating the effects of land use change. Here, on this website, is one of the many places I share my efforts.

I co-founded and taught (2014-2018) in the Master of Science in Geospatial Technologies offered at the University of Washington Tacoma. I am also an affiliate assistant professor in the Geography Department at the Unviersity of Washington Seattle campus. Welcome to my site. Enjoy your visit!
