The GISDISS series of dissertations in Geographic Information Science
provides access in printed archival form to doctoral research on
geospatial information. It collects high quality PhD theses
contributing to the global scientific exchange in the field as well
as to a better understanding of the human environment and better
decisions about it. It addresses readers interested in the frontiers
of research on topics ranging from the acquisition through the
modeling and processing to the communication and use of spatiotemporal information.
The subject of Geographic Information Science (considered synonymous here with Geoinformatics and Geomatics) implies crossdisciplinary research, combining methods from such fields as geography and the geosciences, engineering, computer and information science, psychology, philosophy, economics, and mathematics. There are no a priori restrictions with regard to possible disciplines or topics, as long as the dissertations deal with problems posed by information referenced to the earth. The editors welcome doctoral theses in the form of collections of peer reviewed publications as well as monographs, in English or German.
