While everyone in the lab has been busy this year on journal publications, a few of us found some time to head over to ACM SIGSPATIAL this week in Seattle, WA. Grant McKenzie and Krzysztof Janowicz chaired the 2nd Workshop on Privacy in Geographic Information Collection and Analysis.
【Speaker】 Dr. Krzysztof Janowicz
【Title】Exploring the Data Universe with Semantic Signatures
【Time】Wednesday, May 13, 2015 / 4:00 PM / FREE
【Location】McCune Conference Room, Humanities and Social Science Building
The International Conference on Location-based Social Media Data (ICLSM) is taking place today and tomorrow (March 13-14) in Athens, Georgia. The STKO lab was fortunate enough to have two short papers and a full paper accepted at the conference. Lab members Grant McKenzie and Su Han are participating in the conference and presenting these three papers.
Lab member Grant McKenzie successfully defended his dissertation titled A Temporal Approach to Defining Place Types based on User-contributed Geosocial Content on March 5th.
This device creates virtual 3d models of its surroundings in real-time. It combines data from several sensors to do things such as area localization and reactive mesh building.
GIS day is the third Wednesday of November in each year, during the Geography Awareness Week. As a global event, GIS day provides a great opportunity for GIS users and researchers to exchange ideas and present works to a wide audience. To celebrate this special day for spatial studies, we will hold a lightning talk on Nov. 18th (Tuesday) at the UCSB Center for Spatial Studies. We sincerely invite you to join us and present your work.
From Sep 23-26, 2014, Our STKO members and alumni participated in the Eighth International Conference on Geographic Information Science (GIScience 2014) in Vienna, Austria.
Prof. Janowicz co-authored a full paper: “Linked Data - A Paradigm Shift for GIScience” by Werner Kuhn, Tomi Kauppinen and Krzysztof Janowicz.
Just a quick update to mention that our paper POI Pulse: A multi-granual, semantic signatures-based information observatory for the interactive visualization of big geosocial data by Grant McKenzie, Krzysztof Janowicz, Song Gao, Jiue-An Yang and Yingjie Hu was accepted for publication through Cartographica: The International Journal for Geographic Information and Geovisualization.
Recently, we have designed a Web-based application to visualize the spatiotemporal evolution of Web related research topics (See the previous blog here). In this application, a word-cloud-based timeline has been employed to visualize the evolution of research topics on the Web. While word clouds have been a popular way to display the prominent terms, they are unable to reveal the relations among the research topics.
