Geospatial Analysis for International Development (Geo4Dev) 2018

Conference   |  past event  |  Nov 15 2018

The 2nd Annual Symposium on Geospatial Analysis for International Development (Geo4Dev) was held on November 15, 2018 and focused on geospatial research that addresses climate- and conflict-driven migration and humanitarian response. This includes observation and modeling of migration and human settlement patterns (in response to climate or conflict stressors), as well as the design and evaluation of interventions for humanitarian crises, mass migration, and community resilience.

Geo4Dev is a yearly event focused on the use of novel geospatial data and analytic techniques to address issues of poverty, sustainable development, urbanization, climate change, and economic growth in developing countries and beyond. This includes a particular emphasis on the use of emerging geo-tagged big data, including satellite, social media, and CDR datasets. Each year, accepted speakers are invited to give a 5 or 15 minute talk at the symposium.
