Track: Teaching and Research

Location based games, or GeoGames, implements a digital game world that mirrors authentic real-world geography by leveraging openly available geographic databases, live location feeds, and geoprocessing services. Our GeoGame exemplar, http://geogame.osu.edu/, provides insights into what GeoGames can contribute to key challenges in education and human-environment research. We also identify key gaps that hinder the development of GeoGames to address those challenges.
