    Prof. Dr. Mark Vetter, Cartography and Geovisualisation, Hochschule Karlsruhe, talks at GeoDev Meetup 3 2017 - Maps for Everybody (hosted by Google) in Munich.

     

    "The use of digital maps in smartphones will have an impact on our spatial orientation skills and our map reading competence. Therefore, we conducted a study with Munich high school students in the years 2013 and 2015 to reveal and quantify these changes. What could possibly be done in future school lessons to avoid further loss of this cultural competence?"
