UMBC GIS Webinar: 'Big Social Data: The Spatial Turn in Big Data" May 9, 2013
Posted on May 6th, 2013

UMBC’s GIS Graduate Programs is hosting a webinar on Thursday, May 9, 2013 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. EDT Guest speakers, Abe Usher, from the HumanGeo Group, and Richard Heimann, from Data Tactics Corp, will discuss Big Social Data: The Spatial Turn in Big Data.

This webinar is designed to focus on substantive social science research perspectives while exposing rewards involved in the application of geographic information systems (GIS), Big Data, and spatial analytics in their own research. Highlighting connections between spatial concepts and data availability, new emerging social media data will be promoted over traditional social science data, which better reflect some of the more recently developments in Big Data – most notably the socially critical exploration of such data.
