Join us for our January Healthy Regions and Policies (HeRoP) lab meeting. HeRoP is a lab integrating innovative GIScience, public health, and statistical approaches to explore, understand, and promote healthy regions and policies. We will be having meetings 1-2X a month on Fridays at 2p CST, with a Winter quarter calendar forthcoming! When permitting, record guest talks for those who can’t attend live
Communicating Complexity: Amplifying Geospatial Research with Webmapping and Interaction
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.
