Edinburgh Earth Observatory Professional Seminar Series 2022-23


17:00 - 18:00

Event Type

It’s that time, of year again and we look forward to welcoming you to this year’s series of Edinburgh Earth Observatory Seminars in all things GIS, Earth Observation and how they interact with environment and society.

Talks are run in conjunction with the Association for Geographic Information in Scotland.

We look forward to resuming our series of hybrid talks in our usual format, at our usual (for now) 5pm* slot in weeks to come including talks on data science, Storm Arwen, Crowdsourced/volunteered GI, and climate change and the Wet Bulb phenomenon – all highly topical (tropical maybe?)

Unless otherwise indicated all talks should be held on-campus at 5pm in Lecture Theatre 2.13 of the Geography Institute, 1 Drummond Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9XP. We have room for approx. 50 guests however we will also provide online streaming for talks where possible as a default.

First up however we have this year’s opening talk as something a little special:

Friday 23rd – at the earlier time of 4pm – we welcome Dr. Andrew Turk of Murdoch University, Western Australia.

Andrew has a background which includes surveying and GIS but also a varied and interesting career including diverse areas of study and research.

His talk is entitled: “Transdisciplinary Landscape Language Case Studies, Using Phenomenology as Meta-Paradigm”

For more details and to register for this in-person event, please contact Owen MacDonald on: Owen.Macdonald@ed.ac.uk

*Please note that (at present) this talk will run on-campus at 4pm in LT 2.13 only. (I am also exploring the possibility of talks moving to a more family-friendly time of 4pm and would be keen to hear views on this as to whether this would work for the majority including industry professionals)
