March 18th #geomob near Old Street
Hail fellow geomobsters!
In just over a month, on Tuesday the 18th of March, we’ll be gathering once again to celebrate geoinnovation in any and all forms. We return to Campus, Google’s co-working/events space near Old Street. A map and all details can be found over on the Lanyrd page for the evening, where we also ask that you sign up so we can get an idea of numbers.
The evening will kick off at 18:30, please be on time as we are fortunate to have a great lineup of speakers to get through before the obligatory post-event geobeers. As always, each speaker will have 10-15 minutes to share their work and then there will be a few minutes for questions from the audience.
Our lineup on the 18th:
- In what will no doubt be a feast for the eyes, Jason Davies has finally been persuaded to show off some of his D3 geo magic.
- Emil of CityMapper will update us on their progress as they help the world get from A to B.
- Tubefreaks will get their fix as Peter Lloyd will tell us about the evolution of the New York City subway map.
- Start-up LEMON will talk us through their spin on location based services.
- Andy Ashburner will tell us about his app Pin Drop.
- Finally, Benjamin Hennig of Oxford’s School of Geography and Environment will share with us one of his many interesting projects around spatial data analysis and data-visualization
Many thanks to all of the speakers for their time and volunteering to speak. As ever, we’re every thankful to our sponsors - KnowWhere Consulting, OpenCage Data, and SplashMaps for making the post talk geobeers happen. In the start of a new tradition, the audience will vote on best speaker and the winner will receive a personalised SplashMap.
If you unfortunately can’t make it on the 18th, or even if you can - please put our 13th of May event in the diary. The Lanyrd page is here, we will be back at UCL and the evening has the makings of a great one as we already have several intriguing speakers. Please send suggestions if you know of anyone who should speak at a future event.
Please stay tuned for updates by following @geomob on twitter.
We look forward to seeing you on the 18th of March!
