Communicating Complexity: Amplifying Geospatial Research with Webmapping and Interaction

HeRoP Lab Meeting on Jan 8, 2020 at 2pm CST via Zoom
by Dylan Halpern, Principal Software Engineer (University of Chicago, Covid Atlas)

Innovative geospatial research deserves equally innovative communication and cartography. By translating research projects into new and engaging formats beyond a PDF or presentation, different audiences can be exposed to exciting research methods and results. This talk reviews the research publication to interactive webmap/visualization pipeline used by data visualization specialists and researchers at MIT’s Senseable City Lab. Dylan Halpern, Principal Software Engineer at CSDS, presents several recent webmapping/data visualziation projects from initial research manuscript to final interactive map and website, and the design, research, and technologies that inform this process.
