In 2017, the Guatemala Visiting School focussed on Lake Atitlán, one of the most important natural, cultural and touristic icons of Guatemala. We explored the lake by conducting a wide range of activities: we filmed and interviewed local people and conducted local surveys to get specific information; we flew drones, took aerial photos and made videos, and we will learn how to get 3D models from them and we downloaded, visualized and analyze data from different sources using GIS. In summary, we gained different insights into the lake and its physical and social environment with the aim of eventually working on diverse visions for the future of the lake, crystalized in the production of a number of short videos, presented here.
