GIS Day '07 in Salzburg
Approximately 450 pupils from several schools in and all around the city attended a stimulating program of interactive workshops and geo-games. On GIS Day = Nov 14 the Centre for Geoinformatics (Z_GIS) organised this event with several partners at Science City Salzburg.
Highlights were navigation and caching games with mobile applications on cell phones, experiments with geological modeling, a satellite image quiz and a peek into the International Polar Year research program. Fascinated students left with a new image of Geography, GIS and location-aware technologies.
