The series of International Symposia on Spatial Data Handling started in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1984. Since then it has evolved into a biennial event of high calibre, at which recent trends and developments in geographic information science are discussed. The proceedings of this series have become an important reference for researchers and students in the field of geography, cartography, and geoinformation.
