Introducing a new member of King’s Geocomputation – Dr Chen Zhong! Chen joined King’s College London in September 2016 and her work on urban mobility directly contributes to the Geocomputation Research Domain. Here she provides a brief intro to her work.
Over the past year, we’ve been supporting our first cohort of Geocomputation & Spatial Analysis (GSA) students as they learn to code and work with geo-data in an open computing context (predominantly FOSS). This post reflects on some of the problems – and solutions – that emerged as a result.
This Thursday 23rd June, Alex Griffiths from the School of Management & Business will give a seminar on the use of ‘big data’ in regulating public service provision.
In this guest post King’s Geography PhD Student Jake Simpson describes some of his geocomputational work analysing data from tropical peat swamp forests to estimate carbon emissions.
On Monday 21st March 2016, Faith Taylor and I managed to organize a MissingMaps mapathon here at KCL.
What follows is not a mere report of the event (it’s been great fun, just look at the pictures!), but rather an attempt to cover certain aspects of a mapathon which usually might be overlooked, and that I instead consider to be of interest for an academic audience.
