GCUT – GIS & Cartography at the University of Toronto – Technical Paper Series

This series has been initiated as a way to document and disseminate research methods developed for projects undertaken in the GIS and Cartography Office. Usually these projects are related to grant-funded research by Department of Geography faculty or other university collaborators. In most cases, they allow innovative GIS research methodology to be described in detail for the purposes of review and replication, and to be referenced by shorter publications in academic journals or other summary formats.
