This workshop, organized by University of Bern, aims at providing an interdisciplinary platform to present and learn about best practice rules for geospatial data exchange, metadata tools and archiving facilities:

  • Discuss the possibilities of geodata transfer and preservation not only within small workgroups but also large interdisciplinary projects
  • Discover the geodata sharing features of open source (e.g. CMS Cartaro) as well as proprietary (e.g. ArcGIS) software
  • Learn about successful applications of geodata crowdsourcing for scientific purposes
  • Present your own ideas and experiences related to the provision of geodata among different disciplines and levels of knowledge
  • Find out about the potential of Web-GIS solutions for international cooperation
  • Get to know about innovative technologies for sustainable and easyto-access geodata archiving

Expert talks, scientific presentations as well as training sessions will enable participants to use innovative and sustainable methods of geodata cooperation.
