Data and practices

In social practice and often also in science, maps and map-like representations are frequently conceived and created to make definite statements. In contrast, the IfL in its research aims to understand geographies of the regional as multi-perspectival. The research group “Data and Practices” analyses established ways of dealing with data in scientific disciplines. The group investigates procedures that ensure that ambiguous results are retained for research processes or can be consciously engaged. It also develops concepts and approaches for geovisual products that are open to diverse and different user and interest groups.
