This week our GIScience Heidelberg team member Rene Westerholt most successfully defended his PhD! Congratulations! Very well deserved!

The thesis is located at the interface between spatial analysis methodology and the characteristics of spatially superimposed random variables. Three types of contributions are presented:
(i) the interactions of spatial analysis techniques with spatially superimposed random variables
are investigated;
(ii) novel [...]
