Holding a PhD in Economics and Business Administration, he wrote his habilitation thesis on “Evolutionary Web Development” and currently focuses his research on text mining, integrating semantic and geospatial web technology, media monitoring, virtual communities and computer-mediated collaboration. Prior to his MODUL appointment, Scharl held professorships at Graz University of Technology and the University of Western Australia, and he was also a key researcher at the Austrian Competence Center for Knowledge Management. Last year, Springer published “The Geospatial Web”, a book co-edited by Scharl. His receiver contribution explains why geography is emerging as a fundamental principle for structuring information.”
