Result The SDI-EDU educational geoportal seems to be a very effective solution for vocational education. We have also tested the solution in cooperation with other European projects. The technical solution is evaluated by users as original and relatively easy to use. Only for better orientation of end-users it was recommended to reorganize the structure of the educational geoportal's menu. Then it is easy to find the particular content using the metadata searching tool which is a part of geoportal.
Area of application The used tools are focused on computer assisted education which combines theoretical and practical training. We have used implemented SDI-EDU educational geoportal during various dissemination activities and the response from audience was very positive. We are also using the SDI-EDU geoportal for communication and dissemination of the SDI-EDU project and its results on social networks. The feedback we get in this way is also very important for further activities in the project.
