Ifan Shepherd: Maps – GIS – Experiental Engagement: a possible roadmap for Neocartography

He packed this full. It touches on gamification with depicting geography in games. When I get a hold of my notebook, I will add my thoughts from when he presented this.  Found my notebook, he looked at:

  • Videogames as the new GIS.
  • “psychological” realism
  • whole sensory expereinces with sound and lighting = emotional
  • dynamically modifying environments
  • immersive consciousness
  • personal mileux’s
  • senses of place

He also mentioned of a free game design engine called Unity.
