[演講公告]GIScience Beyond the Conventional Spatial Data Handling

Friday, November 04, 2016, 14:00 - 16:00
Location Room 202, the Geography Department Building, NTU
講者: Shih-Lung Shaw, Ph.D.
演講大綱:

Geographic information science (GIScience) has traditionally focused on spatial data of physical entities with absolute locations. This focus has served GIScience well in the past few decades to tackle a variety of spatial problems. However, this conventional view of spatial data is becoming insufficient to study human activities and interactions in today’s world. With the advancements in information and communication technology and location-aware technology, many human activities and interactions are increasingly taking place in virtual space that has very different characteristics from the conventional approach of handling spatial data in geographic information systems. For example, what is the location associated with an online purchase at amazon.com? Where are you in Facebook? What are the locations associated with a WeChat group message? Should GIScience be concerned with such data that are beyond the conventional view of spatial data? What are the challenges of handling “spatial” data beyond the physical entities with absolute locations? This presentation will discuss examples of “spatial” data beyond the conventional locational data in physical space and propose some directions of developing GIScience beyond conventional spatial data handling.
