CDRC paper wins CASA prize for the Best Paper on Spatial Analysis at GISRUK 2017

A CDRC funded conference paper by Luis Francisco Mejia Garcia (former CDRC Masters Research Dissertation student, now BlueOptima), Guy Lansley (CDRC, UCL) and Ben Calnan (Movement Strategies) won the UCL CASA prize for the Best Paper on Spatial Analysis, in memory of Sinesio Alves Junior, at this year’s GISRUK conference. The prize was judged by an independent panel of academics from the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA). The paper entitled “Modelling Spatial Behaviour in Music Festivals Using Mobile Generated Data and Machine Learning” aimed to demonstrate the potential utility of mobile phone data to understand and predict spatial consumer behaviour within an enclosed environment. The study was an extension of research conducted for a dissertation in last year’s CDRC Masters Research Dissertation Programme.

The extended abstract is available on the GISRUK website: http://manchester.gisruk.org/proceedings.php and Luis’s Masters Research Dissertation case study here.
