Workflow proposed by Paris Cité University (UPC)

Immersion

  • Defining a topic and a research question
  • Collecting data during a field trip

Interaction

  • Analyzing data
  • Discussing the results

Institutionalization

  • Creating a virtual field trip
  • Interaction

Implementation

  • Presenting to other students the VFT
  • Debating on it.

The Université Paris Cité’s Athens Virtual Field Trip is based on a sensory approach to the field. It is enhanced by artistic representations of the space.

Workflow proposed by Eurogeo

Problem finding and purpose definition

  • Problem identification
  • Formulation of a guiding question
  • Determination of the concrete place of the field trip

Getting to know digital tools

  • Familiarization with the tools
  • Practicing

Creation

  • Creating the virtual field trip

Rethinking

  • Opportunities for the virtual field trip
  • Challenges of the virtual field trip
  • Reflection of the learning process

The Athens Virtual Field Trip developed by Eurogéo is based on a more conceptual (with a heuristic map) and visual approach with visual panoramas of the area.

Identify the topic / Imagine your story

  • What is the objective of the story?
  • Who will be the audience?
  • What kind of content do you plan to include?

Collect data and resources / Create a content inventory

  • Generate a narrative text.
  • Gather multimedia information.
  • Decide which type of map or maps you wish to use.

Create the story on the Story Maps Platform

  • Choose the platform (in this case: ArcGIS StoryMaps, but it is possible to use others such as Google Tour Builder or StoryMapJS).
  • Utilize the interactive builder to assemble your story.
  • Experiment with modifying the default content.
  • Create an instant app or express map if desired.

Simplify, refine the content and publish

  • Adjust and refine the content of your story.
  • Don't forget to make a call for action or ask for reflection.
  • Verify that the text is written correctly and free from typos.
  • Publish the story.

Check / Testing and review

  • Check all functionalities and ensure correct access using the provided links.
  • Confirm that the display is accurate on more than one device.
  • Seek third-party opinions for potential improvements or changes.

Share, promote and update

  • Define sharing options and republish your story.
  • Share your story with your target audience.
  • Promote it on social media or other communication channels.
  • Maintain and update your story to ensure it remains relevant.

Workflow proposed by National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) & commonspace

  • Introduction, describing the research framework:

Describe the research motives, problem/issue that you addressing, as well as the research objectives and the research questions

  • Background, formulated by secondary sources:

Explore secondary sources (coming from literature or other sources) to describe the theoretical, conceptual and geographical background of your work

  • Your Narrative (Findings and Results), as framed by your primary data:

In this step, form your storymap's narrative, using the primary data that you have collected

  • Critical self-reflection and Concluding remarks:

This step refers to the conclusion of the storymap

  • References, Bibliography, Relevant Readings, and Additional Material:

All references and sources used for the storymap should be included, as well as additional relevant readings and other useful material.

Commonspace has developed an Athens virtual field trip on the scenes of everyday life with both an interpretation of spatial practices and an illustrated road trip.

NTUA’s virtual field trip focuses on the diverse aspects of Athens's "sustainable" urban form put in perspective with a spatial reading of the city. It was also presented as a poster at the ISUF 2023 conference.
