Alessio Di Lorenzo is a Marine Biologist and an MSc in Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing. Now he is living in Pescara, Italy, the place where he was born in October 1979.
One fine day, looking for suitable tools to represent and analyze the environmental phenomena, he discovered GIS and decided that it was worthwhile to investigate the topic. By mixing his personal interest in computer science, open source software, and programming languages with the spatial knowledge, he has concentrated more and more on Web Mapping and Web GIS.
Nowadays, he works as a consultant and trainer for local and central governments and various organizations. Most of his experience concerns the use of geospatial and web technologies to study and manage data from emergency and monitoring plans in the environmental, veterinary, and public health fields. He is author and co-author of articles concerning GIS for various scientific papers and for the TANTO blog.
When not having fun with maps and connected stuff, he likes to spend his time swimming and riding his mountain bike or his motorcycle!
