For today’s episode we have the pleasure to introduce to our listeners Barbara Hofer, who is Associate Professor at the University of Salzburg in the Department of Geoinformatics - the famous Z_GIS. Barbara was here in Tartu to give a course on Web Cartography with Leaflet. Barbara gives us some deeper insights into developing knowledge systems, the EO4GEO curriculum and about teaching Geoinformatics.
We also want to share around 5 or more recent interesting articles on GIS with every episode so that you and we have the idea on what kind of research is going on in the field of GIS:

Barbara is Associate Professor at the Z_GIS in Salzburg, the interdisciplinary Centre of Competence for Geoinformatics of the University of Salzburg, Austria. She is Associated Faculty at Doctoral College GIScience, on the Editorial Board of the AGIT - Journal für Angewandte Geoinformatik. Her research interests include Interoperability and spatial data infrastructures, Online Geoprocessing and Digital Earth.
Alex is a Researcher with many years of experience in geospatial data management and web- and cloud-based geoprocessing with a particular focus on land use, soils, hydrology, hydrogeology and water quality data. His interests include OGC standards and web-services for environmental and geo-scientific data sharing, modelling workflows and interactive geo-scientific visualisation. Alex is currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellow (MSCA) at the Department of geography of the University of Tartu, Estonia.
Tahmin Sitab is a masters student at the Geoinformatics for Urbanised society programme at University of Tartu. He did his bachelors in anthropology from Bangladesh. He is interested in the intersection of sociology and geography and almost every other topic. He firmly believes that you can love both a cat and a dog.
