Participatory GIS on Iceland – Teachers mobility – vol. 1

Similar to my stay in Trondheim, now I have the opportunity to realize project titled Participatory GIS on Iceland – Teachers mobility, financed through the EEA and Norway Grants. The main idea is to focus on increasing my capacity and sharing best practices in the areas of Participatory Geoinformatics (PGIS). I am here to explore the possibilities of participatory approaches in GIS and its use for local activities/development. 

First week of my stay is over and here are the highlights:

1. Presentation of my two friends and colleagues from Department of Geoinformatics at Palace University in Olomouc – Vít Pászto and Lukáš Marek. They both presented their PhD research.


2. Meeting with Harpa Stefánsdóttir and Sesselja Traustadóttir regarding possible cycling roads mapping project.

3. Iceland itself – it is just beautiful country 🙂

The Participatory GIS on Iceland – Teachers mobility (my project) benefits from a 2.000 € grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the Norway Grants. The aim of the project is to to create a suitable background for establishing successful partnerships at the bilateral and international level between institutions and individuals involved in the educational sphere in the Czech Republic and the Donor States – in this case Iceland.
