Our workshops at academic conferences explore topics that support ongoing center research.

Upcoming Workshops

AGILE 2018 - Teaching Geospatial Technologies to All

This workshop will explore core concepts to teach when introducing geospatial technologies, regardless of learners’ disciplinary backgrounds. We will discuss how certain concepts guide the choice of spatial computations to answer domain questions and statistical computations to answer primarily non-spatial domain questions. Read more.

GIScience 2018 - Core Computations on Spatial Information

This workshop will discuss the types of transdisciplinary questions that can be answered with a GIS, with the goal of making GIS more accessible to a wider audience across the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and arts. We will explore how the choice of core concepts and core computations can bridge the gap between user questions and software commands. Read more.
