Abstract

As part of the 50th year anniversary of the Austrian Institute for Regional Studies and Spatial Planning, the idea to present visitors different images and faces of Europe was born. Traditionally one of the main tasks within the institute is editing, scientific analysis and cartographic representation and visualization of regional data and spatial indicators.

The planned presentation should contain appealing entertainment and sophisticated regional information at the same time. A way to cover both aspects, embedded in an informal and pleasant setting, had to be found.

We concluded from the success of our developed project – a horizontal light sensitive and interactive map projection – while its first public presentation, that our defined approach was fulfilled very satisfying.
