  1. Readings 6 items
    This section of the course is designed to be a wide introduction to GIScience and covers many different topics that are not covered in any one specific textbook. In addition, a large part of the section (computer labs) consist of a hands-on experience of working with GIS software. The material will therefore be summarised in lecture handouts and lab instructions, all of which will be available on Moodle. For those with interest in GIScience, here is a list of further resources:
