GIS Research UK

The GIS Research UK Conference series provides a focus for GIS research in the UK but welcomes contributions from across Europe and around the world. Following the successful formula of previous years, the conference aims to provide an informal and stimulating event that will bring together new and established researchers from all areas of GIS theory and application. Papers are invited on all aspects of GIS, but it is intended to have special sessions focusing on the following areas: Spatial Literacy; Data Mining and Geospatial Intelligence; and Spatial Analysis and Information Fusion.
