Reading the cloud: Making sense of location based data

  1. 1. Reading the cloud <ul><li>Making sense of location based data </li></ul>Chris Marmo PhD Candidate, RMIT University
  2. 2. Today... <ul><li>Parks Victoria project intro </li></ul><ul><li>How can we use location based data? </li></ul>
  3. 4. Geoknowledge Project <ul><li>How can Parks Victoria better utilise the knowledge it and its staff have? </li></ul>
  4. 5. Geoknowledge Project Valuable, park specific knowledge, obtained through years of experience, is inaccessible.
  5. 6. Geoknowledge Project Valuable, park specific knowledge, obtained through years of experience, is inaccessible. How can we share that knowledge?
  6. 7. Geoknowledge Project
  7. 8. Geoknowledge Project Knowledge
  8. 9. Geoknowledge Project Knowledge People
  9. 10. Geoknowledge Project Knowledge People
  10. 11. Geo-tagged data is everywhere
  11. 12. invisible cities invisible cities
  12. 13. Information needs to be interpreted to be useful
  13. 14. <ul><li>“Knowledge is a consensus of interpretation” </li></ul><ul><li>Burke, 2000 </li></ul>
  14. 15. ?
  15. 16. Augmented reality (amongst other things) (amongst other things)
  16. 17. Our idea <ul><li>Allow people to generate knowledge in the places that knowledge is about. </li></ul>
  17. 18. Overlaying v Revealing
  18. 19. Factual v Social
  19. 20. AR gives us context
  20. 21. Context can be confusing
  21. 22. Place vs Space Harrison & Dourish (1996)
  22. 23. <ul><li>Space is raw location - the GPS coordinate </li></ul>
  23. 24. <ul><li>Place arises through social interaction with space </li></ul>
  24. 25. <ul><li>“Knowledge is... the dynamic by-product of unique relationships between an individual and the environment.” </li></ul><ul><li>Jeong-Im Choi </li></ul><ul><li>on situated cognition </li></ul>
  25. 26. Studying interactions with space
  26. 27. Visualize data in-situ
  27. 28. To allow...
  28. 29. ...social knowledge creation!
  29. 30. So... <ul><li>AR can help us make sense of information in-situ </li></ul><ul><li>Context is more than location </li></ul><ul><li>Design for place </li></ul>
