Amelioration of GI-teaching in senior secondary schools (PaikkaOppi)
The PaikkaOppi-project develops a learning environment on geographic information for personal and shared use of students on the upper secondary school level. The service is being tested in various schools in Turku, Joensuu, Vantaa and Ulvila. It is possible to create school- and course-specific learning environments in the service. In these environments the students can store the spatial data sets (for instance a digital herbarium) that they have captured by themselves.
FGI designs and implements a part of the map service of the PaikkaOppi-project, together with the Southwest Finland map service Lounaispaikka and Arbonaut Ltd. The related tasks include technical design of the map service, use of service interface technology and provision of the geospatial data sets to the service.
