Marc Tim Thiemann has been studying Digital Media at the University of Bremen, Germany since late 2012. He will be an intern at the Center for Spatial Studies for about 6 months, working with Werner Kuhn. The focus of his work will be programming a Python API for the core concept “Events,” which was defined by Kuhn in Haskell. The Python API makes it possible to query geographic data using a general API without the need of actually knowing GIS software like QGIS and ArcGIS.
