Spatial Coverage

On the occasion of the bicentenary of the Greek Revolution, the Onassis Foundation and Onassis Library organize the national student competition “Hack the map: Rigas Velestinlis’ Charta” for the creation of digital works. The competition is organised in collaboration with the Cartographic Heritage Archive of the General State Archives/Historical Archive of Macedonia, and the Department of Geography of the Harokopio University, Athens. New technologies, riddles and symbols are used in a multimedia competition that draws its inspiration on a famous and rare map, inviting groups of students to create a digital game, a digital story, or applications of virtual (VR) and augmented reality (AR).
