BEGIN seminar – Dr David McArthur

Date: 18 February 2020 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: School VI Understanding and promoting cycling using crowdsourced data Cycling is increasingly seen as a way of dealing with a variety of social problems: from dealing with the climate emergency to improving public health. Unfortunately, in the UK cycling is not a common mode choice. Governments have made […]

BEGIN seminar – Vanessa Brum-Bastos

Date: 21 January 20120 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: School VI Movement analytics: using geospatial temporal data to understand behavior Movement analytics has been boosted in the recent years by the ubiquitous availability and quality of spatio-temporal data on people and wildlife. Movement ecology and human mobility are the two main application areas of movement analytics, the […]

BEGIN seminar – Theoni Photopoulou

Date: 17 December 2019 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: School VI Using time series models to make biological inferences from animal tracking data Animal location data can be thought of as time series of individual animal behaviour. This type of animal movement data can be effectively analysed using statistical models for time series to help understand what […]

GIS Day 11/11/19

GIS Day @ St Andrews When: Mon. Nov 11, 2019 13:00 – 15:00 Where: SMC:T201 – Lecture Room 1, St Mary’s College, South Street Speakers: GIS in the energy industry (Joe Marple, Graduate Environmental Consultant, Xodus Group, Aberdeen) Mapping a PhD in bird navigation (Beate Zein, PhD Candidate, School of Geography & SD, St Andrews) […]

BEGIN seminar – Christina Fell

Date: 19 November 2019 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: School VI Automatic detection of animals from aerial photography Aerial photography is increasing available to ecological researchers from a variety of platforms such as drones, light aircraft and satellites. This generates large amounts of data which is usually examined manually by researchers to detect and locate the animals. […]

BEGIN seminar – Miguel Nacenta

Date: 15 October 2019 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: School VI Maps, Space and the 2D Plane from the Data and User Interface Perspective The 2D plane underpins most displays of information and therefore most of the ways in which interface designers and data analysts can dynamically represent information. As a user interface and information visualization designer/researcher […]

BEGIN seminar – Dr Jan Kropáček

Date: 2 July 2019 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: Forbes room, Irvine Building Title: Remote sensing of environmental change in mountain areas Abstract: The changes in temperature and precipitation patterns and human intervention of different types are changing the face of mountains at an unprecedented speed. Remote sensing provides us with periodic, unbiased information on a global […]

BEGIN seminar – Dr Thiago Silva

Date: 14 May 2019 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: Forbes room, Irvine Building Title: Embracing variability: using remote sensing and spatial data to understand ecosystem function in seasonal ecosystems Abstract: Highly seasonal environments are often characterized by a strong coupling between environmental variation and ecosystem responses, including organism adaptations, plant phenology and productivity, and biogeochemical cycling. This […]

BEGIN seminar – Dr Paul Holloway

Date: 11 June 2019 Time: 15:00-16:00 Venue: Forbes room, Irvine Building From static to dynamic: Aggregating the conceptualisation of movement data better captures real world and simulated animal-environment relationships. Habitat selection analysis is a widely applied statistical framework used in spatial ecology. Many of the methods used to generate movement and couple it with the […]
