About the Summer School
open SPatial data Infrastructure eDucation nEtwoRk (SPIDER) is an Erasmus+ project aiming to promote and strengthen active learning and teaching towards Open SDI. Its main goal is to introduce new trends and innovations in teaching and learning which should lead to better knowledge acquisition and higher competences of the students for the job market. Project composes of five acknowledged European universities, TU Delft, KU Leuven, University of Zagreb, University of Lund and Hochschule Bochum, with experts in the domain of spatial data.
Open SDI Summer School is designed as an event to present methodology and content developed through several project phases related to new topics and new teaching and learning methods in open SDI education. It is meant for students who would like to build on their knowledge in open SDI domain, but in a more active way.
The Summer School aims to introduce participants into the concept and state-of-the-art of open SDI and related data with topics ranging from fundamentals to technical and non-technical characteristics.
