Add seminar to my diary


Recent advances in tracking technologies result in geographic information representing the movement of individuals at previously unseen spatial and temporal granularities. This new, inherently spatiotemporal, kind of geographic information offers new insights into dynamic geographic processes. This talk presents an introductory overview to movement data in general, the theory for modeling and analyzing movement, as well as a set of application fields of movement analysis.
