My name is Ilya Boyandin. I design and develop geographic data visualizations. I’ve completed many projects for media, private companies, NGOs, transportation authorities and academic institutions. I’ve worked at big IT companies and startups, universities and a renowned design studio. Currently, I am helping to build the next generation geospatial analytics platform at Unfolded. In late 2020 I founded GeoVisually GmbH, an interactive maps and geographic data visualization consultancy.
My special interest is in visualizing data about geographic movement of people or goods, e.g. transport-related data. I wrote my thesis about this topic and developed Flowmap.blue, a free online tool for visualizing origin-destination movement. I share much of my code online.
I am the father of two wonderful kids. I like to play guitar and piano and produce electronic music.
