The Austrian national radio station Ö1 joined LBS2019 to capture the latest developments and ongoing research on Location Based Services: “Die Tücken der elektronischen Karten – Wie GPS die Welt(sicht) verändert” (starting at 19:18) is available in German until 29.11.2019, with interviews with Gartner Gartner, Georg Molzer, and Anita Graser.
For centuries, humans used maps to orientate themselves by land, by sea or to find their way. Nowadays, Location-Based Services are capable to provide such – and much more – information tailored to the users’ contexts. Last week, the international conference LBS2019 took place in Vienna to discuss ongoing research, projects, and challenges.
Thank you for participating in LBS 2019, the 15th Conference on Location-Based Services!
From 11 to 13 November 2019, the conference was once again organized by the ICA Commission on Location-Based Services and the Research Division Cartography, taking place at TU Wien. After its initiation at TU Vienna in 2002, the conference travelled around the world – with venues in Austria, Switzerland, China, Germany, and United Kingdom.
This year we were again priviledged to host more than 90 participants from 24 countries, contributing to the conference with high quality presentations and inspiring discussions. All proceedings are open access and can be found here.
More photos of the event can be found here.
Thanks to all participants and you for making the conference such a memorable event again!
From October 10-12, 2019, the first Cartography M.Sc. Alumni Meeting took place, hosted by TU Munich. The alumni of all former intakes, fresh graduates, current students, and consortium members of the four cooperating universities met for the first time to learn, reconnect, and network.
During the three-day event, the alumni from different intakes shared their career stories, gave professional advice, motivational mantras, and presented lessons learned after they left the Alma Mater.
