Abstract

Computational methods in GIS and Earth Observation are an important part of the curricula in Geo - informatics. Apart from the theoretical foundations students need to get acquainted with the practical application of these methods in software. However, many GI software packages are not designed for the purpose of educating principles of GIS and Earth Observation and therefor do not provide the right tools and interfaces for students and novice users to comprehend the coreconcepts. In this paper we describe our effort to build a GI software that does support students in learning through visual workflows and linked views of different representations of raster images such as maps, tables and graphs.
