Geography on map

Postgraduates from India are coming to Leeds for research training in Computational Geography. The training will assist in local development and planning in India, and the students will be fully-funded by a new United Nations and Indian Government project, initiated by Dr Jim Hogg when he visited India two years ago.

Members of the Centre for Computational Geography are organising a conference on state-of-the-art techniques such as neural networks at the University of Otago, New Zealand. This conference follows the success of the first annual conference held at Leeds last September.
