I have also supervised GIS projects and facilitated exercises in GIS, remote sensing, GPS data collection, and quantitative analysis of population geogprahical data. I have been teaching within the following courses at the Department of Social and Economic Geography, Uppsala University, covering in total 290 lecturing hours:
