GeoMonday 2016.4 – The Beauty of Mapping Big Data


Data Lens is a cloud-based API toolkit for developing web-based geographical data visualizations. Raw data is queried via a REST API from the Data Lens cloud, and transformed and aggregated to provide input to the JavaScript API, which can render map objects, vector shapes and heat maps. This talk is about the beauty behind big data represented by Data Lens heat maps, the beauty behind its accuracy and its engineering.

GeoMonday 2016.4 – Are you a smart citizen? Try Smart Beetles

logoSmart cities make use of information technologies to improve performance and quality of urban services, to decrease costs and to optimize resources, besides to involve citizens actively. However, many citizens do not know all the services and advantages that a smart city offers to them. In this work, we make use of a videogame to involve them in different cities and, by playing with real services, increase their knowledge about smart cities.

GeoMonday 2016.4 – Geovisualization Tools


The democratization of spatial data and mapping tools has led to a broader field of actors working on maps and geovisualization tools. In his talk, Sebastian Meier will show examples from student projects to research projects to applied design projects, from the interface design department at the university of applied sciences Potsdam, to illustrate this new opportunity space.

Sebastian is a researcher in the interaction design lab of the university of applied sciences Potsdam and the human centered visualization firm VISLAB. He is working on spatial data visualization and mobile systems.

GeoIT Wherecamp 2016 Review

Dear more
than 350 Participants,
dear 65 Speakers,
dear 53 Program Committee Members,
dear 18 Sponsors,
dear 8 Galileo Hackathon Team Members,
dear 7 Organizers,
dear Vice President of Beuth Hochschule and
other helpers,
many thanks for engaging with the 6th edition of the GeoIT.Wherecamp Navigation Conference 2016.
One week after our event, we received much positive feedback from you all. Therefore I have the impression that we all enhanced the event again to an enjoyable, but also knowledge driven conference in the GeoIT sector. We are preparing now the presentations, photos and videos for you.

As announced you may also join the organizing Association for Geoinformatics, GeoIT and Navigation e.V. as a student, regular and corporate member:  to be part of more than 100 members. The next Association event is the upcoming GeoIT.Geomonday on December 5th with only 6 remaining seats ( Also the GeoIT.Perspectives meetings are in preparations.

For other ideas or general issues, contact us via After this main event more practical issues like homepages, legal and financial requirements, office and other activities get into our focus.

We are looking forward to 2017 together with your advice, support and ideas.

Prof. Dr. Roland Wagner

Wherecamp Navigation Conference Chair,
President of the Assocation for Geoinformatics, GeoIT and Navigation e.V.
