Spatial Footprints

Our Projects

We have accumulated a vast experience over the years.

About the project:

 

The studies on spatial dynamic processes in urban and rural landscapes are being perceived as an alternative activity for adults with the support of informal education methods based on digital technologies
and systematization of skills for social and cultural heritage interpretation. The studies of old maps, plans
of places, landscapes, pictures, which represent the dynamics in the previous and recent times between
the Baltic and Nordic countries. These create the preconditions to elaborate a new and extraordinary
approach for cultural tourism development in the form of spatial dynamic tourism promotion. The studies
of human migrations, historical events, social and cultural processes imply on a better understanding of
social and cultural disparities and their created values and identities, as spatial footprints in the dynamics
of time and space. The gaining competences on spatial analysis of landscapes using GIS tools, creation of spatial dynamic tourism routes and their media for promotion with heritage interpretation
through informal adults’ education, these promote the creation of evidence-based mapped, textual and
digital spatial dynamic tourism products elaborated by adults’ seeking to get more involved in the tourism
sector.
The project results are devoted to adults, who seek to get more abilities and skills in spatial dynamic
tourism planning and in the creation of digital tourism products and to present them into tourism market
as an alternative source of incomes in the promotion of spatial dynamic tourism as an alternative niche tourism
between the Baltic and Nordic countries.
