Joachim Pouderoux

Technical Expert

Joachim holds a Ph.D. in Computer Sciences from the University of Bordeaux, where he also received his Masters and Bachelor’s degrees. His Ph.D. thesis investigated semi-automatic creation of digital terrain models for visualization and interaction on handheld computers.

Since 2009, Joachim worked as an R&D Engineer at BRGM, the French Geology Survey. At BRGM, he was responsible for leading 3D visualization projects including visualization techniques for geological data for VR environments. He also led mobile application development for disseminating 2D and 2.5D geological data on iPhone/iPad and Android devices. Further, Joachim is experienced in developing 3D visualization and interaction techniques for ground and underground GIS data for an augmented reality application called Project RAXENV.
