AGI-EEO Seminar Series 2014-2015 – get the dates in your diary!

EOO1415Once again, AGI Scotland are sponsoring the Edinburgh Earth Observatory (EEO) team for another programme of exciting talks; titles and dates listed at the end of this post – further details will be passed on as we receive them.

The first talk is a week today – Fri 26th Sept – with Edinburgh University’s very own Prof. Ian Woodhouse.


This year we continue to look at the ever-changing, diverse, Geospatial landscape. We look at relatively new initiatives such as BIM and the use of GIS and EO across new domains, industries and areas of research activity, both in historical and future contexts.

Something of interest to everyone we hope!

Seminars are held at 4.30pm in the usual venue – Old Library, Geography, University of Edinburgh, Drummond Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9XP.

Refreshments and nibbles will be available.  Any changes will be advertised on the website nearer the time and also in the posts sent during the week of the relevant seminar.

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

See the EEO 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!
