Welcome to the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography

The research carried out at the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography is concerned with spatial structures and current developments that have a spatial impact in Europe, as well as with the theoretical and historical foundations of Regional Geography. The IfL has a section devoted to the presentation of research findings to specialist and more general audiences. To this end, the Institute creates and tests innovative means for visualising geographical knowledge and geographical information on the internet.
