Human mobility, cognition and GISc

In GIS and related sciences (GISc) registration and analysis of human behavior and development of technologies to back us up during our daily activities has a long history behind. Such activities include navigation and wayfinding. At the same time a vast amount of effort has been spend to investigate and conceptualize the psychological/cognitive and neurophysiological background of our spatial behavior - including our abilities to perceive, memorize, apply and communicate spatial knowledge.

It is the aim of the conference to bring together professionals from cognitive, analytical and geo-technical sciences (including psychologists, anthropologists, geographers, engineers, and computer scientists) for the mutual development of future concepts for experimenting with, recording, analyzing, simulating, visualizing, and communicating data and information regarding humans’ spatial behaviour.
