Abstract: Geospatial analysis not only provides insights about land-use (commercial, residential, or industrial for example), vegetation, and hydrology (the distribution and flow of water ) but how they are impacted by human activity. Geographic properties capture complex interactions, dynamic shifts in ecosystem balance and how activities influence eco-geomorphic conceptual frameworks across a wide variety of environments.
When we tell stories, at least stories that bring us a fresh understanding of what may seem familiar, we enlarge our consciousness and refine our sensibility.
Using tools like QGIS, Python, and SQL attendees will learn how to build complex themes about the built infrastructure in urban environments, flooding in Pakistan, the Brazilian Rainforest, and post-disaster rebuilding on the island of Puerto Rico by highlighting individual stories noticing connections and the synthesis of larger concepts and emerging ideas.
Any familiarity with data visualization -- our first data vizzes in life were maps so it should be appropriate for all levels
Bio: Bonny is a geospatial analyst and self described human geographer and social anthropologist. Exploring geographic properties that capture complex interactions, dynamic shifts in ecosystem balance and how activities influence eco-geomorphic conceptual frameworks across a wide variety of environments are the topics of popular public talks and panel discussions.
The ability to apply advanced data analytics, including data engineering and geo-enrichment, to poverty, race, and gender discussions targets judgments about structural determinants, racial equity, and elements of intersectionality to illuminate the confluence of metrics contributing to poverty.
Bonny is the author of the books Python for Geospatial Data Analysis: Theory, Tools, and Practice for Location Intelligence (publisher, O’Reilly Media) and Geospatial Analysis with SQL: A hands on guide to performing geospatial analysis by unlocking the syntax of spatial SQL published by Packt Press. Current projects include a new book in progress with Locate Press, Geospatial Data Science & the Art of Storytelling.
