Zur Unterstützung der Ziele der Kommission GIScience wurden in kleinerem Rahmen auch Forschungsprojekte konzipiert und realisiert - hier in kompakter Form zusammengestellt:

Accessible MapWeb-based maps for visually impaired people.

AccessibleMap aims to give better access to online web-based maps, especially city maps, for people with visual impairments. The goal is to improve the orientation of the target group in cities, and therefore to support their mobility and independence. AccessibleMap focuses on a semantic spatial description based on the user’s needs and requirements.
