On the 12th and 13th of August 2014, the Smart Simulation Group led by Dr. Mohamed Bakillah of the GIScience Research Group at Heidelberg University organized and hosted an internal workshop for the CAP4Access project partners. The aim of this workshop was to present and discuss the activities, sharing of tasks, ongoing progress and issues with the various partners. Among others, talks were given by Dr. Bakillah, Project Leader at Heidelberg University, about the development of the collaborative tagging and recommendation system; by Dr. Adam Roussel, about the routing and navigation services; and by Amin Mobasheri, about the geo-data quality evaluation service. In addition, representatives of center for social innovation (ZSI) partner, Dr. Christian Voigt, Susanne Dobner, and Patrick Berger presented their ideas and initial sketches about different user stories developed for their pilot test in Vienna.
The talks led to fruitful comments that will be considered to ensure the quality and relevance of the services being developed, as well as outcomes that provide future directions for the next steps. The participants of this workshop were from Heidelberg University, Center for Social Innovation (ZSI), Sozialhelden and Mapping4Change.
