GIS in Japan

Our Deputy Director, Professor Alex Singleton, dedicated a week to running a workshop at Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Japan.

Covering the basics of Geographic Data Science (GIS) and Urban Analytics with particular emphasis upon the study of cities through new forms of data, the final day included presentations of independent student projects that focused upon a range of different application areas. Winning projects were awarded with CDRC branded prizes, including a printed 2017 calendar featuring top maps from our mapping portal,

Alex’s workshop was received extremely well and proved to be an useful illustration of code based teaching of GIS  to new users of R.
