The UrbanMetaMapping Research Consortium warmly invites you the third edition of our online, midday academic talks on issues connected to our research interests on mapping man-made and natural catastrophes, heritage, urban planning, and digital tools used for researching these.



Meetings take place first Wednesday of each month at 1100 am – 1200 pm (Central European (Summer) Time (CET/CEST).

They last for an hour (including Q&A) and provide an exciting platform to discuss with international scholars their research and exchange ideas.

If interested, please email us at talks.urbanmetamapping@uni-bamberg.de to receive access to our Zoom meeting room. We look forward to you joining us for the UrbanMetaMapping Seminar Series!
