Abstract: Developing text analytics in any language for any genre of text is challenging; adding geographic interpretation of text or the mentioned entities therein, further complicates the situation. OpenSextant is one of many open source text analytics efforts that focuses on geographic analytics of unstructured data and has been applied to domains of biosurveillance, social media demographics, digesting reporting from the field and world news analysis. While the geotagging and geocoding...

REGISTER March 30, 2018 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm Leader/Instructor Stacy Bogan NON-HARVARD REGISTER One popular use of remote sensing is the analysis of land use change over time. In this workshop, students will learn how to search for and download free Landsat data; how to prepare these data for analysis; and how to examine land use change over time. We will be using ArcGIS and IDRISI Selva, both of which are available to Harvard affiliates on the CGA website. This class is meant to build off of introductory GIS and Remote Sensing workshops.
