This website is built on Kirby 3, a flat-file content management system (CMS). Flat-file means that all content isn’t stored in a database, but directly in your file system as files and folders. Each folder represents a page that is accessible via its own URL. The flat-file architecture of Kirby makes it fast, flexible and easy to understand.

Text is set in Inter, a free and open source font family designed by Rasmus Andersson. Inter is a sans-serif typeface designed for screens. It features a tall x-height to aid in readability of mixed-case and lower-case text.

I’m Gerhard Lanz—a spatial professional with a creative streak. I believe in a world enriched by location information.

I have been working with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as a Geospatial Analyst since 2012. If I’m not sitting in a room lit only by glow of raster data, you can probably find me in the great outdoors.

This website is intentionally simple—it allows me to focus on what really matters. It is also GDPR complaint. This website does not use any tracking scripts, nor does it collect, use, or share any personal data.
