Portland State University School of the Environment Invites you to Geographies of Uncertainty
The University of Texas at Dallas
“Uncertainty in Spatial Analysis: Visualization, Measurement, and Modeling”
Join us this Thursday December 3 from 4:00-5:00 PM with Guest speaker Yongwan Chun of The University of Texas at Dallas
Uncertainty in spatial analysis has been recognized in the literature. Research has addressed various aspects of uncertainty including different sources of error, visualization of uncertainty, and error propagations. While positional error is inevitably raised in data representations, e.g., in GIS, attribute error also has an impact on spatial analysis. The release of margins of error (MOEs) in American Community Survey (ACS) draws an attention to attribute errors in spatial analysis. Focusing on attribute error, this presentation discusses uncertainty-related research areas in spatial analysis and shows recent progresses specifically, visualization, measurement, and modeling of uncertainty.

Please join PSU's GIS Club in welcoming Dawn Mott and Christopher Moravec of Dymaptic in their presentation of A.I for Cycling Navigation.
Tuesday, May 28 12:30pm to 1:30pm
PSU Cramer Hall - Room 409
Their goal for this project is to inspire others to bike more often. Their data begins focused on Portland, OR as that is where they work and cycle. They've seen the city grow over the past few years and would like to offer safer routing options that learn with the cyclist and are always ready to improve. They may also need cycling volunteers willing to ground truth some cycling routes! Come find out more about their project and the great work they are doing.
Here is a link to their Blog with more information on the project: https://dymaptic.com/navigation,/cycling/2019/03/12/ai-cycling-navigation.html
