Digital-earth.eu was a Comenius network funded by EACEA composed by 65 organizations from 17 European countries. P.M.F. Research was one of the Italian Partners.
The digital-earth.eu project examined the use of geographic media in schools and teacher education. Geomedia is the visualisation of information from different media sources and is concerned with digital content and its processing based on place, position and location.
Many geographic media are widely used for navigation and routing purposes. Cartographic communication has never been so easy to implement, therefore 21st century school education needs to include geomedia into daily work. There is need of innovative approaches to teaching and learning to study environments from local to global scale.
The Digital-earth.eu network linked innovative centers around Europe where geomedia use is well developed. The centers shared products, resources, experiences and ideas and opened them to the public wherever possible.
The European Centre and an accredited network of national and regional Centres of Excellence developed an online catalogue of materials, courses, publications, links and good practice scenarios, and published a series of core publications.
