Stories on a Sphere: Hyperglobes as Narrative Platforms for Global Geodata

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6432)

Abstract

The hyperglobe (HG) will be introduced both as a technological and a semiotic-communicative model. We will argue why and how concepts from the domain of digital storytelling can be used for developing authoring software for a HG (i.e. for a spherical display) and outline the HG’s future potential as a narrative platform for multidisciplinary research.
