Visualizing the global countryside

Posted by Michael Woods, 27 August 2014

We’re presenting a poster at the Royal Geographical Society conference tomorrow introducing the GIS and geovisualization work that we are doing in work package 2 of the GLOBAL-RURAL project. This work aims to map key globalization processes affecting rural areas and their local impacts and expressions, combining maps and geovisualizations with commentaries, photographs, audio and video files and links to online resources, to produce an interactive website for use by researchers, students, teachers and the public. As we’re still at an early stage in the GLOBAL-RURAL research, the poster – which is part of a session on ‘Visualizing Economic Geography’ – presents a couple of illustrations of the proposed work using data from previous research. You can see the poster by clicking the link below.
