Movement data in GIS #6: updates from AGILE2017

AGILE 2017 is the annual international conference on Geographic Information Science of the Association of Geographic Information Laboratories in Europe (AGILE) which was established in 1998 to promote academic teaching and research on GIS.

This years conference in Wageningen was my time at AGILE.  I had the honor to present our recent work on pedestrian navigation with landmarks [Graser, 2017].

If you are interested in trying it, there is an online demo. The conference also provided numerous pointers toward ideas for future improvements, including [Götze and Boye, 2016] and [Du et al., 2017]

On the issue of movement data in GIS, there weren’t too many talks on this topic at AGILE but on the conceptual side, I really enjoyed David Jonietz’ talk on how to describe trajectory processing steps:

In the pre-conference workshop I attended, there was also an interesting presentation on analyzing trajectory data with PostGIS by Phd candidate Meihan Jin.

I’m also looking forward to reading [Wiratma et al., 2017] “On Measures for Groups of Trajectories” because I think that the presentation only scratched the surface.

1st European State of the Map Conference in Vienna

The 1st European State of the Map Conference (SotM-Europe) will be held July 15-17 in Vienna, Austria. So far, there have been 4 International State of the Map conferences. This will be the first European edition of this event.

Topics include:

  • Mapping (mapping, data, tagging, the state of the map in your country, etc…)
  • TechTalks (development, rendering and infrastructure)
  • Powered by OpenStreetMap (projects/business ideas based on OpenStreetMap)
  • Convergence (open geo data world vs. the world of proprietary and authoritive data and software)
  • Research (for researchers working with OpenStreetMap data)
  • Others (other interesting information)

The call for papers is still open until Monday, February 28 2011.

The international conference will be held in Denver, Colorado from September 9-11 2011.
