May 10 | U_Lecture webinar Open and Reproducible Spatial Data Analysis for Spatial Data – Ideas and Examples

Professor Chris Brunsdon, Professor of Geocomputation at Maynooth University, Ireland

The idea of reproducible research has gained much recent attention. This is an approach to publishing reports, documents and web sites relating to data analysis in which complete information regarding the data used and the programming scripts used to perform the analysis are encapsulated in a single object. The idea is that third parties can not only read the report but they can also reproduce any analytical results or visualisations included in the report. This allows the scrutiny of methods used, as well as the adaptation of methods for different data sets or similar but distinct statistical analyses.

In this talk, Professor Chris Brunsdon will discuss key ideas and justifications for reproducible research, together with a description of a practical implementation of a reproducible research framework based on the R programming language, together with RStudio and RMarkdown. In addition to this, some examples of ongoing work using a reproducible paradigm will be given, including an open and reproducible geodemographic classification for the Republic of Ireland, a critique of multivariate indices of well-being and the production of tutorial materials.

Using Location to Enhance Your Competitive Advantage. Build up your skills to bring your Geo-idea to the market!

In this 1.5 day workshop you will be introduced to a range of techniques used by ‘startups’ to help develop your own geo-enabled business idea. You will learn the steps you need to take to identify and develop your idea, secure customers, and find market opportunities.

The participants of this workshop will be GI professionals, UNIGIS/Geo- students and alumni who want to bring their own GI-project to life, or get a new business idea off the ground. These are not only skills for new entrepreneurs, they will help you develop and champion internal company projects as well! The Workshop takes place in Salzburg on 28.-29. April 2017.

Programme details
The workshop will be lead by Dr. Ian Heywood, who teaches entrepreneurship at the University of Aberdeen Business School, with a focus on practical startup tools and techniques. This workshop has been co-created with input from Ed Parsons, an Executive Fellow at the University and Google’s Geospatial Technologist. It will feature a recorded lecture from Ed about GI entrepreneurship. The workshop will be supported by e-learning materials, and a UNIGIS elective module.

* Note: The workshop is open to everyone and especially for the UNIGIS community who want to add smart start-up skills to their studies and CV.

Registration: https://goo.gl/forms/WJE33Y8jNHGbkqLC3   (Please register before 17th April 2017!)

GI_Forum 2017 – geospatial@online

GI_Forum 2017 provides a platform for dialogue among geospatial minds, creating an informed GeoInformation Society. Our motto ‘geospatial@online’ focuses on the universal and pervasive introduction of geospatial concepts and methods: have we completed the transition to online GI Services? Are we ready for GI Services 2.0, i.e. dynamic applications built on existing GI Services? Do we educate for these developments at school level? GI_Forum 2017 addresses such questions in the context of big data, sensors, real time data streams, geodata infrastructures and cloud computing, bearing in mind perspectives from a variety of domains. Paper presentations as well as workshops and exhibits are welcome.

Spatial Sciences today contribute to a more just, ethical and sustainable society. Prominent keynote speakers will highlight new developments, offer visionary insights into trends and developments, and at the same time be individually accessible for our Young Researchers.

GI_Forum is organized by the University of Salzburg, under the coordination of the Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS and in cooperation with the Austrian Academy of Sciences, and runs concurrently with the highly regarded German language conference on Applied Geoinformatics – AGIT. The two symposia share the innovative AGIT EXPO exhibit and stimulating social Events.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to GI_Forum 2017!

February 1 | U_Lecture webinar Geospatial Information Licenses for Non-Lawyers

This UNIGIS Webinar by Kevin D. Pomfret will be held on Wed, Feb 1, 2017 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM CET –

The geospatial community (government agencies, industry, universities, NGO’s) are increasingly creating geospatial products and services by aggregating a wide range of datasets from a variety of sources. In many instances this data is licensed from one party to another, not sold. A geospatial information license does more than transfer rights in geospatial information from one party to another. It is a legal document that allocates operational and legal risks associated with geospatial information between the parties. This UNIGIS u_lecture is intended to help non-lawyers within the geospatial community better understand geospatial information licenses. It will describe the key provisions of a license and how they relate to geospatial information. The goal is to help geospatial professionals understand the rights and obligations that they are agreeing to abide by in entering into a geospatial information license.

Mr. Pomfret is a corporate partner at the Williams Mullen law firm and co-chair of the firm’s Unmanned Systems practice group and the Data Protection and Cybersecurity practice group. He is also the founder and Executive Director of the Centre for Spatial Law and Policy. He counsels businesses and government agencies on the policy and legal issues that impact the collection, use, storage and distribution of geospatial information, such as licensing, privacy and data protection, data quality and liability and regulatory matters. Mr. Pomfret regularly speaks on around the globe on these issues. He began his career as a satellite imagery analyst where he helped to develop imagery collection strategies and identify requirements for future collection systems. He is a member of the U.S. National Geospatial Advisory Committee. Mr. Pomfret is a graduate of Bates College and Washington, Lee School of Law.
