At a first glance, the Workshop dealing with Contribution of Geovisualization to the concept of the Digital City (Hamburg, March 3-5, 2009) may sound a bit data oriented and decision making driven:
The concept of a “Digital City” does not refer to a single, specific city. Instead we pursue a functional approach with four interdependent aspects:
- Supporting data and information,
- providing a communication infrastructure,
- delivering value added information and innovative services, and
- using virtual environments in planning, decision-making and analysis.
But this workshop might also provide a great opportunity for artists to present their visions and their representations of the Digital City, and to discuss with GIS specialists and cartographers, which might also be entertaining. The deadline for submitting 500 words abstracts is December 1st, 2008.
