Hello world!

Welcome to Claus Rinner’s GIS blog. Inspired by a recent discussion on campus when a colleague supported the argument that blogging about what we are doing with “taxpayer’s money” is the noble duty of today’s academic, I did it. Requested a blog from Ryerson’s reliable computing services and minutes later, I am editing my “Hello world!” post.

This blog is intended to report about my research and teaching in geographic information systems and science, commonly referred to as GIS and GIScience. I will also pass along some general news in the field of GIS and geography, if & when they catch my attention.

Information about me is available from this blog’s “About” page.
