Technik, Digitalität und Raum – Konzeptionelle Überlegungen zu den Geographien alltäglichen Technikgebrauchs

T. Felgenhauer

Abstract. The article reviews the relationship between technology and geography from a social science perspective. Especially, the everyday use of technology is discussed as a form of "geography-making". Making use of technology means that an interaction between lay users and experts (the designer of an abstract system and its user interface) takes place which basically implies the use and translation of differing spatial symbolisations: mainly numerical/algorithmic, deictic, and toponymical terms.
