SpaceTimeLab Launch Event
23 October 2012
SpaceTimeLab Launch Event
The SpaceTimeLab launch event will be held at UCL on 30th October 2012. To mark the occasion, Prof. Michael Goodchild (UC Santa Barbara) will be giving a special keynote talk on Geographic Intelligence. This is a great opportunity to hear from one of the leading figures in GIScience and is not to be missed!
Traditional geographic information provided by authoritative sources
results from a lengthy and labor-intensive process of synthesis. Census
data, for example, is compiled from billions of raw observations, and
little detail is available about the process by which synthesis is
achieved. By contrast, the vast amounts of geographic information that are
now appearing on the Web are largely produced by non-experts, and any
integration is likely achieved by software rather than the intervention of
experts. Several examples are cited. Asserted geographic facts are clearly
of variable quality, and three general strategies are advanced for
addressing quality control: Linus's Law, social strategies, and strategies
that make use of fundamental geographic knowledge.
16:30 - SpaceTimeLab launch seminar, including keynote talk from Prof.
Goodchild, Medical Sciences 131 AV Hill Lecture Theatre
18:00 - Reception and poster event, South Cloisters.
All are welcome. If do plan to attend we would be grateful if you could send an email to James Haworth (j [dot] haworth [at] ucl.ac.uk) so we can get an idea of likely attendance.
