Activities

The International Symposium on Spatial Data Handling (SDH) is the premier long-running forum in geographical information science, providing a prestigious outlet to geographers, cartographers, computer scientists and others in this rapidly developing multidisciplinary area. This conference has been organized as one of the main activities of the International Geographical Union since it was first started in Zurich in 1984.
