Izabela Karsznia, Ph.D.
Research interests concentrate on GIS and hGIS usage in harmonizing spatial data to build historical geoinformation systems and Spatio-temporal analysis of old maps. It also includes using GIS advanced tools and analysis for land-use changes in the selected European countries. The research concerning automation of cartographic generalization and spatial data infrastructure development concentrates on improving settlement and road network design for maps of small scales using artificial intelligence (AI and Data Mining software) and graph theory (GT).
