Students' Conference "Spatial Analysis and Visualization"

March 17, 2019

Systems Laboratory's Spatial Mapping and Analysis Research Group (SMARG) cordially invites CEU Community to the attend students’ conference "Spatial Analysis and Visualization in Environmental and Social Sciences", which will take place this Tuesday, March 19, starting from 9:30 AM, at Nador 9 (Monument Building), Hanak Room 201.

The conference is organized within the “Introduction to Geospatial Analysis” course at the Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy. At the event, students will present their final projects, which explore environmental and other problems by means of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing. Each presentation will introduce findings and the project’s workflow, from problem formulation, data collection and manipulation, to results visualization and interpretation. Projects cover various topics, from wildlife conservation and forestry to disaster management, urban, and energy studies.  

The event will be introduced by Viktor Lagutov, Head of the Systems Laboratory, and the course instructor.

Projects in the following broad categories will be presented and discussed:

  • Urban analysis (10:10 – 10:50)
  • Wildlife Conservation (11:10 – 12:30)
  • Forestry (13:30 – 14:30)
  • Disaster Management (14:30 – 14:50)
  • Energy (16:10 – 16:50)

Feel free to attend all presentations or join the session of interest to discuss the maps developed and the ways to improve them.
