GIScience Reading Group

The GIScience Reading Group is the ultimate possibility for all of us to broaden our horizons and engage into other fields of research within Geographic Information Science. We therefore come together on 3 tuesday evenings (alternating to the colloquium) to discuss papers from the broader GIScience community. For this term, papers were chosen by the organizers of the reading group.
