Gamifying Spatial Collaboration
The summer school will take a close look at the opportunities and challenges that arise through combining geoinformatic technology with gamification for spatial collaboration. Two particular questions addressed during the school will be: How can gamification improve geoinformation technology? and, What are the opportunities offered by gamification to enhance collaborative data acquisition and the gathering of feedback? The summer school will consist of a 6-day program at the intersection of spatial collaboration, gamification and geoinformation technology. It will be held in the stimulating and creative environment of the Institute for Geoinformatics.

The goals of the summer school will be to explore both the theory and practice of gamification and spatial collaboration in geoinformatics, and how we can move towards applying gamification to enhance collaborative data acquisition in geoinformatics.
