Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Neogeography literally means "new geography", and is commonly applied to the usage of geographical techniques and tools used for personal and community activities or for utilization by a non-expert group of users. Application domains of neogeography are typically not formal or analytical. The term neogeography has been used since at least 1922. In the early 1950s in the U.S. it was a term used in the sociology of production & work. The French philosopher Francois Dagognet used it in the title of his 1977 book Une Epistemologie de l''space concret: Neo-geographie. The word was first used in relation to the study of online communities in the 1990s by Kenneth Dowling, the Librarian of the City and County of San Francisco.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Josephus Adjutus ( um 1602 in Mosul, 21. Mai 1668 in Wittenberg) war ein Theologe. Josephus Geburtsstadt Mosul im heutigen Irak steht nach biblischer Geographie für die altmesopotamische Stadt Ninive. Er selbst stammte offenbar aus einer Familie katholischer Chaldäer. Verwandte sandten ihn nach dem Tod seiner Eltern 1606 zur Erziehung nach Jerusalem. Bis 1613 wurde er in Palästina in einem Kloster der Minoriten erzogen und kam dann nach Neapel, wo er Aufnahme in einem Franziskaner-Orden fand. Durch seine fortgesetzten Studien wurde er Diakon und 1632 unter Papst Urban VIII. zum Presbyter erhoben.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.Adolf Holm ( 8. August 1830 in Lübeck, 9. Juni 1900 in Freiburg im Breisgau) war ein deutscher Althistoriker. Adolf Holm war der Sohn eines Lübecker Tabaksfabrikanten und Detailhändlers und wuchs in dem Haus die Sonne zwischen der Braunstraße und der Holstenstraße an der Trave auf. Er studierte in Leipzig sowie in Berlin und promovierte 1851. Danach war er Gymnasiallehrer am Katharineum zu Lübeck. Er beschäftigte sich mit der Geschichte und Geographie des antiken Siziliens wie auch Griechenlands und verfasste ein mehrbändiges Werk über die Geschichte Siziliens im Altertum. In Lübeck hielt er zahlreiche Vorträge als Mitglied der Gesellschaft zur Beförderung gemeinnütziger Tätigkeit und des Vereins für Lübeckische Geschichte und Altertumskunde. Die ehemalige Sammlung von Gipsabgüssen antiker Bildwerke im Museum am Dom ging maßgeblich auf seine Initiative zurück. Er war einer der Gründer des Vereins der Kunstfreunde und dessen Vorsitzender bis zu seiner Berufung nach Sizilien. Weiter war er Schriftleiter der Neuen lübeckischen Blätter.

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Geowissenschaften / Geographie - Sonstiges, Note: 1,0, Leopold-Franzens-Universität Innsbruck (Institut für Geographie), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: This study analyses the spatial expansion in bicycle tourism due to the innovation of electric bicycles (e-bikes) in German-speaking countries. Until recently cycling destinations were mainly limited to flatter regions. This study's objective is to evaluate whether the advent of electric bicycles expands the spatial potential for (electric) cycle tourism in any topographic setting. By means of an online survey of e-bike rental companies and expert interviews with the regional project coordinators, this study compares supply and demand of three sample destinations with different landscape types: the Tauber River valley region and the southern Black Forest Mittelgebirge in Germany as well as the Schladming-Dachstein alpine region in Austria. The results show that most tourists used the e-bike offers spontaneously and chose the destination by other motivations. However, the study also shows that many of these tourists would not consider a bike tour on a normal bicycle. Thus, for many tourists e-bikes hold the potential to extend the radius of the actively usable tourist areas in mountainous destinations. Although all sample regions record a slowly growing demand of e-bike users, the outcome did not quite meet most tourism service provider's expectations. Therefore, it is concluded that unless mountainous destinations intensively commit themselves to (e )bike tourism, this innovation will not bring a revolutionary change in the spatial diffusion of cycling destinations. Most e-bike offers will likely remain a supplementary service, however, it is premature to form definitive conclusions at this early stage.Furthermore, another online-sample of 139 e-bike tourists shows a shift of the favoured landscape types from almost exclusively flat cycle destinations towards the windy coasts, the low mountain ranges and (at a lower level) alpine destinations.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Miscellaneous, printed single-sided, grade: 1,7, University of Hamburg (Institut für Geographie), language: English, abstract: Ever since Schumpeter's work on the business cycles, innovation is widely claimed to be a central aspect of economic development. With market expansion reaching its limits and mass production being relocated into low cost countries, the role of innovation gained more and more importance in order to maintain growth in western industrial countries. In contrast to the industrial processes, innovation is not a process, which can be standardised or routinised. It does not follow mathematically ascertainable schemes, but is rather a dynamic process, which is formed by several factors interacting and enforcing each other (Cooke and Morgan, 1998). The aim of this paper is to shed light on empirically determined factors that promote innovation in certain regions. Eventually some remarkable examples of innovative regions in Europe will underline and verify their importance.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2004 in the subject Sociology - Work, Profession, Education, Organisation, grade: 1,0, University of Graz (Institut für Geographie und Raumforschung), 55 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The number of charters and declarations, promoting sustainability in education is increasing with the number of universities integrating sustainability. For many universities, those declarations are self commitments and are used to improve public relations. Although they may have further implications, declarations can be a strong policy statement. Over 300 European universities have signed the Copernicus Charta and in the same moment, they sign a commitment for sustainable development. This shows that sustainability became an important issue. Universities can use the Charta to raise awareness among staff and convince them that they should act and demonstrate universities' role and impact on society. Universities impact society by their four roles. . Education: Universities train and influence future decision makers. Research: University research influences daily life. Administration/Management: Universities are large employers and consume all kinds of resources. Role in Society/Outreach: Universities have a direct (regional development, actor in society) and indirect (education, research, administration) influence on societal development and especially the surrounding and environment. By fulfilling their role and obligations, universities can contribute to a sustainable development for the society and the university itself. Good examples of each of those responsibilities offer universities ideas about what they can do. Of course good practices must be adapted to their own structure. To gain insight to the processes and the activities of other 'sustainable' universities, universities can participate in the COPERNICUS University Core Group. Within this group, universities can benchmark themselves with others and can get a better understanding about the structure and proceedings of sustainability by learning about good practices and processes of other universities in other countries. Integrating sustainability offers a new challenge for universities of which they can only succeed - Succeed in social well-being, ecological quality and economic prosperity.

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Geowissenschaften / Geographie - Kartographie, Geodäsie, Geoinformationswissenschaften, Note: sehr gut, Universität Wien (Institut für Geographie und Regionalforschung), 72 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: As cartographic textbooks are still focusing on maps, a multiplicity of alternative forms of visualizing reality in digital space is being developed. If cartography is avowing itself on communicating (3D) reality to the user as appropriate as possible, it can not be content to do this best by (2D) maps a priori. Instead of that questions arise, how these new alternatives can and should be used. This implicates an interest in whether and how these recent technologies of visualization may outclass maps as well. Being interested in optimal forms of representation requires a broad theoretic background, that allows to compare different models of reality on a theoretical equivalent basis. However cartography is missing such a basis of comparison at the moment, as its theories, rules and vocabulary are concentrating on the map. The problem that has been outlined above is the starting point of this book. Its aim is therefore to introduce a fundamental theory with a subsequent method derived from it that enhances the capability to comprise the fullness of current forms of visualization. Furthermore it should be possible to incorporate all the future representations of reality as well, that may address visual or other modes of perception. This theory draws on the two correlatives of the cartographic communication process that are independent of technological constraints. These two anchor points are on the one hand reality, which should be represented; on the other hand the user to whom this reality should be communicated. This intermediation process will be structured and analyzed by means of the semiotic model of Charles S. Peirce to clarify the function of a cartographic representation from a semiotic perspective. In a next step the prototype theory will be integrated to this semiotic model to fix the orientation of cartography on the user and to formalize the requirements of cartographic practice. By having introduced the prototype theory a method is already prepared, that allows to communicate reality to the users on a level of categorization that is relevant for them. How this method can be applied concretely shall be exemplified by means of a subset of cartographic signs. In doing so it will become explicit that the presented method can not just be used to design new signs but also to evaluate existing cartographic signs.
