A "Neogeographical Education"? The Geospatial Web, GIS and Digital Art in Adult Education
Papadimitriou, Fivos
International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, v19 n1 p71-74 Feb 2010
Neogeography provides a link between the science of geography and digital art. The carriers of this link are geospatial technologies (global navigational satellite systems such as the global positioning system, Geographical Information System [GIS] and satellite imagery) along with ubiquitous information and communication technologies (such as mobile telephony and the Internet). This study aims to present the main processes by which neogeography emerges from the interactions between geography, geospatial technologies and art and to assess the potential of all these for geographical education. It asserts that neogeography constitutes a vibrant new field of interaction between geography, geospatial technologies and digital art, capable of gradually transforming the everyday experiences of exploration and perception of the geographical space into an art of its own, to the extent that we may need a "neogeographical education", particularly for adult learners.
