Edinburgh Earth Observatory/AGI Seminars 2013/14

eeo_logo13Once again the guys at the Edinburgh Earth Observatory Seminar Series have lined up an exciting programme of talks.

The central theme this year is “GIS Landscapes: Political and Physical”.

http://www.eeo.ed.ac.uk/seminars/programme.html

This year’s focus is on ‘landscape’ – but both the use of GIS and Earth Observation for landscape and land-use analysis, and also the ever-changing political landscape where GI continues to gain more prominence and ‘press’ coverage. Also covered is the increasing relevance and benefit of GI to government and citizen, Public Participation in GIS (PPGIS), Opendata, and the continued use of GIS/EO for tackling environmental and land issues to the benefit of all.

Specific topics include: PPGIS, 3D remote sensing of vegetation and forest, urban-heat mapping and climate change, advanced visualisation and interactive cartography, geographical text analysis/the new spatial humanities, and ecosystem services and landscape analysis, and courtesy of our friends at the Hutton Club, life on Mars?

Something of interest to everyone!

This year seminars will be held at 4.30 pm to allow greater attendance from industry and facilitate greater university-industry contact.  Talks are however in the usual venue – Old Library, Geography, University of Edinburgh, Drummond Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9XP.

Refreshments and nibbles will be available before, during, and after the seminars as always. Any changes will be advertised on the website nearer the time and on the AGI Scotland blog.

All talks are followed by AGI Geo-Drinks now from 5.45 held in the Teviot Library Bar, Bristo Square, EH8 9AJ.

See the website for updates, abstracts, Google calendar, and further information.

Do make a note of these in your diary and we look forward to seeing you there!
