Waldo-Tobler Lecture by Helena Mitasova

Helena Mitasova is the winner of this year's Waldo-Tobler GIScience Prize, and as a highlight of the award event at the Austrian Academy of Sciences she will present an invited lecture on 

"Dynamic Surfaces and Geospatial Processes"
October 3, 3pm @Sitzungssaal

Recent advances in mapping technologies are providing unprecedented volumes of earth data at increasingly higher temporal and spatial resolutions. This talk will focus on robust analytical and modeling tools for transforming these data into information needed to address real-world problems. Analysis and visualization of surfaces derived from multitemporal lidar and structure-from-motion data using multivariate splines will be presented, followed by application of stochastic computational approaches to modeling transport of water and soil over complex, high resolution surfaces. To facilitate intuitive modeling and collaborative problem solving using 3D physical models Immersive Tangible Landscape will be introduced. Many of these ideas find their roots in pioneering work of Waldo Tobler on dynamic surfaces and flows and his groundbreaking contributions to computational geography.

We are looking forward to meeting this eminent geospatial scientist who is a graduate of the Slovak Technical University in Geodetic Cartography and currently serves as a professor at the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (MEAS), and as a Faculty Fellow at the Center for Geospatial Analytics, North Carolina State University (NCSU), Raleigh, NC.
