Dissertation prize winners 2020

We are delighted to announce the 2020 winners of our annual RGS-IBG GIScience Dissertation Prizes. The prize is awarded to the best postgraduate dissertation in geographic information science in the UK and Ireland.

To reward the exceptionally high quality of nominations given the constraints imposed by the pandemic, we have decided to award three prizes of equal value (in alphabetical order):

Hussein Mahfouz (University College London, CASA), Prioritizing Road Segments for Investment in Segregated Cycling Infrastructure: A Methodological Framework [github] [see pdf]

Leo McCarthy (University of Liverpool), Spatio-temporal analysis and machine learning for traffic speed forecasting [see pdf]
