Tools for understanding and discussing future development options: Mapping, modelling and visualizing European rural dynamics.
If most people are not willing to see the difficulty [of valuation], this is mainly because, consciously or unconsciously, they assume that it will be they who will settle these questions for the others, and because they are convinced of their own capacity to do this. - (Friedrich August von Hayek)

Christian Kehl
Delft University of Technology
Christian Kehl is a PhD candidate at the Computer Graphics and Visualisation Group. Here, he works on the visualization of flooding scenarios, funded by the KfC research project, WP4 in Theme 8. In 2012, he obtained his M.Eng. degree in Multimedia Engineering from the University of Applied Science Wismar, his final thesis being on conformal multi-material mesh generation of medical volumes. His current research interest includes real-time graphics, 3D Computational Geometry and geospatial 3D visualization.

Optimal timing, cost benefit analysis and adaptation strategies (factsheet). 
The research question is how can optimal timing of adaptation measures be determined in a setting of decision making under uncertainty and what are the implications for developing an adaptation strategy for climate change at the regional level?
