What is the Science of Where Vocabulary?

It's important to know how to talk about the Science of Where to stakeholders in a way we haven't before. A special vocabulary is needed to navigate those conversation. Here's an overview of the Science of Where vocabulary. What do you think? How do you use this in your work? 




Now, Let's Test Your Science of Where Knowledge

Then it was time to out the Science of Where vocabulary and knowledge to use. Attendees got out their smart phones and played a fun multiple choice quiz game testing both their knowledge and how fast they could decipher the purpose of the maps on the screens. It was tight race to the end, but a good time was had by all.
