Web 2.0 to Encourage Usability of GIS (Geographical Information Systems) in Society – the eGIS+ Project

Ossiannilsson, Ebba LU and Sponberg, Hilding (2009) In Research, Reflections and Innovations in Integrating ICT in Education 2. p.1131-1135
Abstract
GIS applications are nowadays used in nearly every area of society and the need for GIS competence is therefore

increasing over all. Micro-training and open educational resources are important concepts to reach new target

groups, not least from a higher education perspective. The use of Web 2.0 creates possibilities for a more user

friendly approach and for broader outreach. The eGIS+ project addresses the question of how to capture the

interest of children and new groups for GIS and to offer GIS competence with a high level of flexibility in time,

space and study pace.
