Data Science Training Webinars: Spatiotemporal Simulation


Sat - Sat, Jun 25 to Jul 16, 9:00am - 9:00am



 Registration is free to the public.


Notice: the PPTs are in English and the speech is in Chinese.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Geographic Analysis of Harvard University, Geo-computation Center for Social Sciences,  China Data Institute and Future Data Lab, the spatiotemporal simulation training webinar series is a component of the Spatial Data Lab project, which aims to provide replicable, reproducible, and expandable case studies focusing on spatiotemporal simulation. This training webinar series will  cover the following topics: (1) the objectives of data analysis workflows; (2) the comparison of workflow tools for data analysis; (3) the implementation of data analysis workflows for selected case studies  including telehealth accessibility evaluation, employment-residence simulation, location-allocation, and traffic simulation; and (4) potential extensions and future directions.
