GIScience at GeOnG 2020

These days so much is different- also conferences. Carolin Klonner and Marcel Reinmuth attended the GeOnG 2020 virtually. Thanks to the organizers!

It worked well and there was great exchange between the participants. The workshop on experiences in defining health catchment areas brought together diverse stakeholders and approaches. Marcel Reinmuth contributed from the scientific open technology perspective to the workshop. He shared his latest findings on travel time to health facilities in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The lightning talk “OpenStreetMap Sketch Map Tool – The Future of OpenStreetMap Field Papers” presented by Carolin Klonner shows a new participatory mapping method to visualize and formalize local knowledge and is available online.
