Study Project – ArcGIS Server – Results

The study project ArcGIS Server – Client/Server Setup and Development for Geospatial Learning (introduced here) finished with some nice developments and results. The groups developed different applications and conducted usabillity-testing at a school in Muenster. The results of these tests were incorporated into the applications.The individual applications were developed as lightweight web based applications and were based on different frameworks. Topics that were covered by the developed applications were:

If you are interested in the individual implementations of the projects, get in touch with us, we will put you in contact with the authors. The magazin Arc Aktuell by esri will also feature this study project in their upcoming issue.

The new issue has just been released, more on this here.


Mapping Kigali III

Theodore, our local assistance – especially for translations into Kinyarwanda – got a big fan of OpenStreetMap. Yesterday he mapped two more hills of Kigali with one of our Garmin GPS60CSx and is looking forward to continue… Kigali is growing fast on OSM since Theodore is in the game 😉  So perhaps we could start a movement of naming streets the same way, as this is a major problem to get around here. Navigating motos or taxis works just by heading them to landmarks like Ministeries,  Hotels or Bars… somewhat an adventure for non-residents.
