Our Cohort 4 Reserach student, Matt Smith, attended the 27th Geographical Information Science Research UK conference in Newcastle from the 23rd-26th April 2019.  We asked Matt to provide a write up of his experience:

Purpose:

I attended the conference to view the state of GIS and understand where my PhD could fit in.

What I did:

I took part in a number of workshops that introduced elements of GIS, these were:

  • Visualising our cities: Visualising urban digital twins.
  • Accessing open data and using API's
  • GIS in industry

I then sat in on a number of different tracks including:

  • Neighbourhoods and demographics
  • Exploring place
  • Spatial modelling

Who I met:

I met several PhD students from varying backgrounds as well as members of my sponsor company who part sponsor the conference.

Other activities:

The conference also included a visit and meal at the St. James' Park and a visit to the Discovery Museum.Geographical Information Science Conference
