The first year of the International Spring School on Visualization with the subtitle “geovisualization in Maps”, which will be organized by the Department of Geoinformatics at the Faculty of Science on April 7 – 9, will focus on the latest trends in geovisualization. Due to the pandemic, the International Spring School will be organized online in an attractive environment of GatherTown.

“The event is intended mainly for students of geosciences, to whom leading experts in geovisualization from Europe and the United States will present their knowledge. A series of lectures, practical exercises and discussions focused on visual analysis, visualization of spatio-temporal data, creation of maps in open-source programs or multidimensional mapping are prepared for the participants of the spring school,” said Vít Pászto from the organizing Department of Geoinformatics.

Participants can look forward to e.g. the former president of the International Cartographic Association, Professor Menno-Jan Kraak, and Mr. and Mrs. Andrienko, who are leading experts in (geo)visual data analysis. The spring school will also be attended by Aileen Buckley from the company Esri, a world leader in geographic information systems.

The event takes place under the auspices of the Czech Cartographic Society. More information can be found at
