Geography Professor Stefan Leyk gave a video talk today titled "Patterns of Human Settlement over Long Time Periods: Historical Spatial Data and Uncertainty Assessment" to the International Land Use Symposium on “Spatial data modelling and visualisation to enlighten sustainable policy making”, held November 1-3 2017, in Dresden, capital of the German federal state of Saxony. The International Symposium brings together leading academics and interested attendees for presentation, discussion, and collaborative networking in the fields of spatial sciences, environmental studies, geography, cartography, GIScience, urban planning, architecture, which relate to investigations of settlements and infrastructure. In particular, the interdisciplinary meeting examines new ideas in overlapping fields of studies with the goal of advancing understanding of built-up areas, and how recent developments in spatial analysis and modeling can lead to sustainable resource management, better support of planning and regional development, enhanced spatial information and knowledge, and optimized strategies, instruments and tools.
Ph.D. student Johannes Uhl attended the symposium in person and gave a talk today providing technical details on the research.
