Main Web site


In February 2010 an application was made to the EC to establish a Comenius European network of schools, teacher training and other educational organisations who are involved in the teaching with GeoInformation. The proposal is based on the establishment of an Austrian Centre of Excellence for learning and traching with GeoInformation digital:earth:at.


The potential uses of GeoInformation in education has greatly expanded througgh the development of new technologies. In general these have not been matches by pedagogical or curtriculium developments. However there are many initiatives involving schools and teacher training institutions, publishers, software and data providers, NGOs and other agencies. People involved in these need to have the opportunity to share their innovative activities and to establish new opportunities for further developments. This is the aim of the digitalearth:eu Comenius Network proposal.


The network contains partners from more than 20 European countries.
