GeoPulse at the Geopark Information Center
The cross-border Geopark Karawanken – based in Bad Eisenkappel – is an area of outstanding geological heritage. Last year it was recognized for its natural beauty, its biodiversity, natural and cultural treasures by the UNESCO network with the prestigious title of “Geopark Karawanken ” .
Three and a half years ago the project “Geopark Information Center” was launched, the costs of which (more than 2.5 million euros) were for the most part funded by the EU. The concept for the Geopark Information Center was created by Wolfgang Giegler (The Spell), Claus Zweythurm (Ars Electronica Solutions) and Walter Poltnig (Joanneum Research) – together with the leaders of the Geopark project.
For the visualization of scientific, geological data, the Ars Electronica Solutions product GeoPulse was chosen . Here, visitors are invited to explore the topics of “geology”, “natural area”, “communities” and “tourism” on three screens and a large table (2.7 m x 1.6 m).
