Nathan Storey will be speaking to my spatial data analysis class later today, October 10th, 2013, and you are invited to attend! Nathan is a former Hunter Urban Affairs student and current Open Data Guru working with Ontodia doing GIS/open data projects for NYC. Check out PediaCities, their platform to curate, organize, and link data about cities.
This will be a great opportunity to see GIS data applied to real-world problem sets here in NYC. The discussion will go approx 1 hour, beginning at 5:35 in the large lab of Hunter College, CUNY, North Building, Room 1090B. Due to the location, no refreshments will be served, but its a good opportunity to feed your brain :)
Here is what Nathan (the speaker) has to say about this talk:
I will be speaking to Carson Farmer’s spatial data analysis class next week about open data in NYC, data discovery, and PediaCities, a data encyclopedia project I’ve been working on for the past 6 months.
