Geospatial thinking is a newly acknowledged ability with profound and rewarding effects on numerous aspects of everyday life and
science - from giving and following directions and interpreting maps and diagrams, to achieving innovation in STEM disciplines.

The GEOTHNK approach aims at enhancing geospatial thinking skills and engaging users in meaningful, inquiry-based learning experiences. The main outcomes are:
a) a methodological approach for the interdisciplinary organization and semantic linkage of knowledge, and

b) an innovative ICT-based approach and an open, collaborative, web-based learning environment. The GEOTHNK approach, with its transversal and transnational character, will facilitate the development of a variety of geospatial learning paths inclusive of area-specific landscape and climate idiosyncrasies, as well as other natural phenomena with complex socio-economic effects and strong cultural and historical ties.

The GEOTHNK project focuses on spatial thinking, a newly acknowledged ability with profound and rewarding
effects on numerous aspects of everyday life and science from giving and following directions and interpreting maps
and diagrams, to achieving innovation in STEM disciplines.


Spatial thinking constitutes a key competence for life and work in the 21st century and therefore an essential component of
European educational and training activities. GEOTHNK aims at enhancing geospatial thinking skills and engaging users in
meaningful, inquiry-based learning experiences.
