Explaining Brexit and Trump with Tidy data graphics

2nd May 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
LIDA, University of Leeds

2016 was an eventful year. The narrow votes in favour of Brexit in the UK and Trump in the US were a shock to many. You’ve probably heard commentators remark on the underlying causes for why people voted as they did. A familiar caricature is of blue collar disaffection (Leave and Trump) versus liberal, metropolitan values and relative affluence (Remain and Clinton). But is this true of the entirety of the UK and US? In this workshop you'll analyse datasets…

Introduction to Python

10th May 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Leeds Institute for Data Analytics, University of Leeds
Leeds, LS2 9JT United Kingdom
+ Google Map

This course will introduce the participants to the nascent field of Geographic Data Science using the industry standard, the Python programming language. We will cover the key steps involved in solving practical problems with spatial data: design, manipulation, exploration, and modelling. These topics will be explored from a “hands-on” perspective using a modern Python stack (e.g. geopandas, seaborn, scikit-learn, PySAL), and examples from real-world spatial and tabular data. We will start with an overview of the main ways to access…

Introduction to GIS and Spatial Analysis for Retail Applications

14th June 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Leeds Institute for Data Analytics, University of Leeds
Leeds, LS2 9JT United Kingdom
+ Google Map

This one-day course provides an introduction to applications of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial analysis in understanding retail sector dynamics. We focus on the visualisation and analysis of data related to retail supply (e.g. store catchments) and demand (including geodemographics) at national, regional and local scales. We consider commercial and public sector applications of retail analytics and introduce increasingly sophisticated analysis tools. These include GIS-based measures of accessibility and network analysis to determine retail service areas. A series of…

This one-day course introduces participants to sophisticated spatial analysis and spatial modelling approaches that can be used to understand retail sector dynamics. We focus on the analysis of complex interactions between retail demand (consumers) and the retail supply side (retail stores). The tools that we introduce are applied widely by the commercial retail sector and we reflect on the important link between academia and industry in the continual development of these modelling approaches. We introduce participants to statistical and spatial…
