The Center for Spatial Studies, Department of Geography at the University of California, Santa Barbara is hosting the Spatial Data Science Symposium 2019 this coming week with the title
Over 40 selected participants will gather to discuss the future of Spatial Data Science at this expert meeting. Instead of being restricted by a historically grown partition into small and overlapping communities that deal with spatial data in one way or the other, the overarching goal of this symposium is to put spatial data science at the forefront of a unified field that explores the current research and application landscape to define an agenda for spatial data science for the next 10 years.
Prof. Alexander Zipf has been invited to stimulate the discussion with an talk about
“User generated Geoinformation and Spatial Data Science – Dream Team or Nightmare?”
We thank the organisers for initiating this important meeting and are looking towards the outcome of the discussion about a potential research agenda for the emerging field of Spatial Data Science.
