Yilan Xu (University of Illinois), "Modeling the Social Media Information Network Across Space"
This paper takes a data-driven approach to model how social media information diffuses over geographic space to form an information network. Using an innovative variance decomposition of the vector autoregression model (Diebold & Yilmaz, 2009, 2012, 2014) and Hurricane Ida as a case study, we construct a weighted and directed climate disaster information network on Twitter described by an information network adjacency matrix....
This webinar will introduce best practices for sharing NIH-funded data in generalist repositories including tips and guidance for generating high quality metadata to describe your data, preparing data files and documentation for sharing, considerations for data licensing and privacy, and reporting on open data and metrics.
Learn how to include generalist repositories in data sharing plans as part of your preparation for the new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy beginning in January 2023. This webinar will include guidance on selecting a generalist repository, using generalist repositories jointly with discipline-specific repositories, describing plans to use a generalist repository in a Data Management and Sharing Plan, and preparing for data sharing and reporting.
Join us for a panel discussion with the 6 generalist repositories participating in the NIH Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative (GREI). Learn about common features and capabilities across repositories as well as repositories that support specific use cases. Discover how these repositories are working together to support NIH-funded researchers and participate in an audience Q&A... Read more about GREI: Meet the GREI Generalist Repositories
Learn what a generalist repository is, including key repository features and data sharing use cases for generalist repositories. Find out how generalist repositories fit into the NIH data sharing landscape and the new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy.
Human-centred approaches are of particular importance when analysing urban spaces in technology-driven fields, because understanding how people perceive and react to their environments depends on several dynamic and static factors, such as traffic volume, noise, safety, urban configuration, and greenness. Analysing and interpreting emotions against the background of environmental information can provide insights into the spatial and temporal properties of urban spaces and their influence on...
CGIS South Building, room S020 (Belfer Case Study Room)
This full-day workshop offers hands on instruction on learning and applying several GIS and mapping techniques commonly used by those practicing in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The workshop will include discussion and interactive exercises aimed to contextualize the usage of geography and maps for each participant's individual research or teaching interests.
Specifically, the workshop will cover:
Introduction to and examples of the digital spatial humanities and spatial social sciences
Overview of a diverse range of spatial software,...
The annual Dataverse Community Meeting is an opportunity to build, grow, and enrich the global community. Like the open-source Dataverse product itself, the activities of the Dataverse Community Meetings are community-driven. Over three days of presentations, workshops, and working group meetings we aim to promote and learn about behavioral and technical solutions and standards for curating, sharing, and preserving data that can be discovered and reused across disciplines to reproduce and advance research.
The Dataverse Community Meeting is hosted by Harvard’s ...
"Well-being, Emotion, Network: Geo-spatial Trackers of Unobservable Human Attributes on Social Media"
Human behaviors and performances are largely determined by unobservable human attributes, which hinder the progress of social and behavioral science. The proliferation of geotagged social media data provides new opportunities to develop instant metrics for these important yet unobservable attributes... Read more about Yichun Fan (CGA)
GIS is no longer about creating static maps (well… unless you want to). With ArcGIS Online users can connect to thousands of authoritative real-time datasets, analyze this data, modify symbology, and then configure custom applications. This session will demonstrate some of the recent updates to ArcGIS Online by showing a configurable dashboard highlighting 2020 ACS census and weather impacts getting built on the fly.
This full-day workshop taught via Zoom video confernce focuses on the visual representation of geographic information. The first part will explore general reference cartography, and the fundamentals of conventional reference mapping. The second part will focus on statistical thematic cartography, and the use of GIS to generate visual representations of spatial information using both desktop (ArcGIS Pro) and web (ArcGIS Online) software. Experience with GIS software is not required of participants,...
