Geospatial Summer School 2019
Nowadays, more than a half of the humankind lives in urban areas. Projections estimate that urban population will continuously grow and in 2050 it will represent almost 70 % of the Earth’s population. In this context, it is vital to study and understand processes in urban environment. Geospatial technologies, geographical knowledge and spatial analyses is becoming more and more fundamental when it comes to spatial planning and decision making in urban areas. It is then crucial to learn about urban environment both cross-disciplinary and inter-nationally. The G3S Urban 2019 offers an opportunity for the encounter of students, scholars, and experts in the field of GIScience accompanied with urban environment. The summer school is designed to guide students through the entire process of geoinformation project workflow – from data collection, data management, spatial analyses, geovisualisation, to modern presentation of results. Moreover, G3S Urban 2019 strives to establish a platform for participants to bring their experiences, ideas, data and projects to share, work, present and discuss it.
The GeoSpatial Summer School (G3S) primary focus is to provide and transfer new geosciences skills, techniques and knowledge from scholars/experts to the students. Building on the successful G3S’s organised by the Department of Geoinformatics (Palacký University Olomouc, Czechia) in 2017 and 2018, we have decided to continue with the activity and hold the event also in 2019.
