Rotem Elinson

Doctoral dissertation under the supervision of Prof. Noam Levin

I am a PhD student in the Department of Geography and at the Advanced School of Environmental Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem

My research -"Crowdsourcing as a tool for exploring recreational and hiking activity in nature in Israel" focuses on the combination of outdoor recreation and volunteered geographical information-VGI

The formal data bases have limitations in understanding recreational activities patterns in open spaces, and in recent years, with Crowdsourcing increasing, these limitations can be overcome by using such databases.

In my research I use various analytical tools, including spatial analysis in GIS and temporal analysis of the databases.
