Geodata visualization: a rich picture of the future
Since a number of years we provide the course "GIS for Society". This course covers three challenging topics: geodata visualization, network analysis, and 'open' geodata. These three subjects have been chosen because today's citizens use these subjects on a daily basis via their smartphones in an integrated way. Numerous examples are the various Apps to navigate, monitor endurance sports performance, and monitor locations of friends and acquaintances. The most ultimate among these Apps offer a real-world gaming experience like the augmented reality game Pokémon Go. In our course we try to deal with the essences of each of the three subjects and from there their interrelationship.
