Studenteropgave: Speciale

Abstrakt

Information management is an important personal skill, therefore a concept allowing a better information management extended by a digital map was developed in this thesis. It focuses on two independent spaces. The first space is called abstract and handles information in form of spatial diagrams particularly mind-maps consisting of keywords and relations forming for instance a complex structures of ideas. The second space called physical aims to organize information on basis of assigned geographical location, therefore the physical space is represented as a digital map. These spaces overlap each other and create a coherent unit, which provides better understanding of both spaces mutually. There is developed a special design supporting both spaces through positionable element on a digital map. The developed geo-mind-mapping application is tested by a group of users with a positive feedback regarding orientation on a map. Use of the concept and geographical mind-maps is illustrated by real and theoretical applications.
