Research area: Geovisualisations

Within the framework of practical map production, the research area makes original contributions to spatial visualizations for various media and target groups in respect of knowledge transfer, basic research and empiricial studies. In empirical research, the social significance of maps and cartographic representations is taken into consideration. Furthermore, the research area develops and maintains methods of geovisual communication and provides for basic research infrastructures of the IfL.
