1. Geocomputational landscapes and spaces

    Fri 15 March 2013

    Special session titled “Geocomputational landscapes and spaces” at the International Conference on Applied Mathematics, Modeling and Computational Science (AMMCS-2013), to be held at Wilfrid Laurier University, August 26-30, 2013.

    The deadline for abstracts is April 15, 2013.

    Description of the session:

    This session focuses on new applications and theoretical developments in geocomputation. Increasingly, spatial analysis and modelling requires advanced computational techniques (MCMC, INLA, GAs etc.) to address problems related to land and resource management. This session is devoted to current developments and advances in geocomputation for understanding landscape patterns, processes, and building spatial decision-support systems. For example, talks will ...

  2. FOSS4G and teaching GIS

    Mon 20 July 2009

    Two quicks notes to share:

    Firstly, please check out this excellent introduction to GIS by Tim Sutton, Otto Dassau, and Marcelle Sutton in partnership with the Chief Directorate for Spatial Planning & Information, Department of Land Affairs, Eastern Cape, South Africa, and the Spatial Information Management Unit, Office of the Premier, Eastern Cape, South Africa. They use QGIS to present some basic GIS concepts and skills, and I particularly like their section on Coordinate Reference Systems.

    Secondly, don’t forget to checkout the FOSS4G 2009 Free and open source software for geospatial conference in Sydney in October. There will be loads ...
