Thematic Seminar: Integrated qualitative and quantitative data in geodiversity mapping

We are pleased to announce that the GIScience 2021 Conference will host a Thematic Seminar on Integrated qualitative and quantitative data in geodiversity mapping organised by the Working Group on Landform Assessment for Geodiversity of the International Association of Geomorphologists.

The Seminar is supported by the journal Quaestiones Geographicae that may consider the Seminar papers in transdisciplinary approach for publication.

Organizer: Prof. Dr. Zbigniew Zwoliński (

Co-organizers: Dr. Joanna Gudowicz, MA Alicja Najwer
