The digital-earth.eu initiative connects institutions, outstanding in the field of geo-media, as accredited “digital-earth Centres of Excellence”. Geo-media is the visualisation of information from different media sources and is concerned with digital content and its processing based on place, position and location.
digital-earth.eu Centres of Excellence (CoE’s) actively promote the use of geographic (geo-)media in education for schools, teacher education, universities, industries and organisations in their own context and locations. They are connected by the European Centre of Excellence, sharing approaches, products, resources, experiences and ideas, making them open to the public wherever possible. The CoEs believe innovative approaches to teaching and learning are needed to study environments from local to global scales and therefore 21st century education needs to include the active use geo-media in teaching and learning.
