The GISLab of the URPP Language and Space has taken up work on 3 January under the direction of Curdin Derungs. It is located at the Department of Geography, but Curdin Derungs will also regularly be present at the Institute of Comparative Linguistics to promote collaboration between linguistics and geography.

The GISLab connects URPP linguists who are interested in the distribution of linguistic phenomena in geographical space to geographers of the GIScience Center working on GIS technologies.
