Nature of the Workshop

The main objective of the workshop was to discuss about the challenges in spatial knowledge acquisition with displays that cannot show much content. The papers we had selected highlighted specific aspects of that challenge. They were meant to trigger discussion and exchange amoung the participants of the workshop.


In the beginning, Stephen Hirtle gave a introduction to the workshop. Thanks, Steve!

Each author gave an short overview (about 10 minutes) about the idea in his/her respective paper. After each intro, all the participants had the change to discuss questions that came up or that were explicitly offered for discussion.

In the end there was a roundtable discussion with about 12 participants who discussed the challenges and opportunities in communicating spatial knowledge with limited information displays. It was a vivid and controversial discussion.

The workshop went very well which agrees with the feedback we received. A big THANK YOU to all participants, authors and reviewers. The proceedings are freely available.
