Sarah Wise wins best paper award at GISRUK 2014

Congratulations to SpaceTimeLab researcher Sarah Wise, who was awarded the CASA prize for best paper at GISRUK 2014, in memory of Sinesio Alves Junior. Sarah’s paper, entitled Agent Based Modelling and GIS: Exploring our New Tools in a Disaster Context, explores the impact of the rapid changes in volunteered geographic data sources that occur in the aftermath of natural disasters on the tools that we use to plan our responses to them. The work builds on an agent based model that Sarah developed with Andrew Crooks at George Mason University. Sarah’s work was praised both for its novelty and its practical importance.  

SpaceTimeLab travels to AAG

Publication date:

In early April, SpaceTimeLab members Sarah Wise, James Haworth and Monsuru Adepeju travelled with SpaceTimeLab Director Tao Cheng to Tampa, Florida, for the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers. The Lab had a strong presence in the Spatiotemporal Thinking, Computing and Applications stream, with presentations on space-time scan statistics (Monsuru), agent-based modelling (Sarah) and machine learning (James), all with application to predictive policing.
