Video • Ate Poorthuis: “GIScience & Network Analysis: A Happy Reunion?”

Ate Poorthuis’ GIScience webinar is now online! Abstract:After having grown into distinctly different sub-disciplines in the latter half of the 20th century, quantitative geography is now increasingly adopting methods and techniques from network analysis. Network analysis provides a different perspective on the world, through relations between people and places instead of the abstract space of […]

Video • Andrew Crooks • “Analyzing and Modeling Urban Environments”

Andrew’s GIScience webinar is now online! Abstract: The beginning of this century marked a milestone in human history. For the first time, more than half of the world’s population lived in urban areas. This trend is expected to continue into the foreseeable future with 6.7 billion people projected to live in cities by 2050. This rapid […]

Video • Anita Graser • “Exploratory Analysis of Massive Movement Data”

Anita’s GIScience webinar is now online! Abstract: The potential of Big Data for understanding human mobility patterns and other complex phenomena in transportation and movement research is significant. Many contemporary Big Data sources have clear spatiotemporal dimensions. However, Big Spatiotemporal Data is usually messy and presents numerous challenges to researchers and analysts trying to extract […]

Video • Jakub Nowosad • “Pattern-based spatial analysis”

Jakub’s GIScience webinar is now online! Abstract: Discovering and describing spatial patterns is an important element of many geographical studies with spatial patterns being related to ecological and sociological processes. While spatial patterns are often clearly visible on maps, it is not easy to unequivocally decide if two areas are much alike or delineate regions […]

Video • Ross Purves: “Chances, challenges and limits for text-based exploration of landscape”

Ross Purves’ GIScience webinar is now online! Abstract: In this talk I will report on our work to use text to explore different dimensions of landscape, with the ultimate aim of developing methods which enable us to understand how landscape is perceived from multiple standpoints. I’ll talk about the chances that these approaches bring with […]
