E003 - The Chair of Geoinformatics and Cartography of the Department of Geography at the University of Tartu

We are introducing the Chair of Geoinformatics and Cartography. We present an overview of the Chair and the activities and we managed to get three representatives, which we interview during the episode: Professor Tõnu Oja, who is the Head of the Chair of Geoinformatics and Cartography, senior researcher Dr Evelyn Uuemaa, who is leading the Landscape Geoinformatics Lab, and also became recently head of the Department of Geography, and the PhD student Bruno Montibeller. We apologise for the sound quality during some of the interviews, we promise to improve that in the next episode :-) Please let us know any suggestions or advice that can help us grow.
