Abstract

Recently, geography's role in human-computer interaction has risen due in part to the popularity of social computing as well as the number of ubiquitous GPS enabled devices. We now, either explicitly or implicitly, track, store capture, and annotate our surroundings constantly through out the day. In turn this changes how one might come to understand and perceive the spaces and locations around us. This course builds a framework for researchers and practitioners in geographic human-computer interaction, providing an introduction to foundational literature, modern geography, as well as, the qualitative and quantitative research practices that are most relevant to the HCI community.
