Geospatial Forum with Dr. Ben Watson – Location Experience: Where We’ve Been, Are, and May Be
- This event has passed.
Dr. Ben Watson | Associate Professor | Dept. of Computer Science | NC State University
Abstract: Finding our way has always been necessary, and we have always tried to make it easier. Yet today, wayfinding is changing so rapidly that it makes our heads spin. What have we lost? What might we gain? I will use a review of wayfinding past, present and future to raise such questions; arguing that the enjoyment we experience along the way is now just as important as the efficiency with which we find the way’s end.
