GIS for transport workshop – applications open

In case you missed this Call for Maps (not a call for papers – this is a practical workshop!), please see below. It’s for a workshop organised by Transport Geography Research Group webmaster Robin Lovelace on GIS for Transport applications. More below and on the workshop page of the GISRUK conference.

Are you a transport researcher who uses GIS, or a GIS specialist interested in solving transport problems?

If so, this could be the workshop you’ve been waiting for.

GIS for Transport Applications (GIS4TA) is a day-long workshop focussed on developing practical skills in emerging open source tools for analysing the spatial characteristics of transport systems and transport behaviour. It will take place at the University of Leeds on 14th April 2015. For more details on the workshop, and the GISRUK conference of which it is a part, please see here:

The main focus of the workshop is practical: we will explore advanced methods in R, QGIS and Routino, taught by myself, Nick Bearman, Godwin Yeboah and Richard and Adrian Ellison, visiting GIS experts from the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) in Sydney.

The deadline for applications is just one week away: 5pm Friday 16th January 2015.

Instead of a regular call for papers, we’re sending out a call for maps. Attendees who wish to present a map (it’s not compulsory) have the chance of winning a £50 cash prize from the Royal Geographical Society, awarded to the ‘best map’.

Application is by email to Eusebio Odiari ( ).

See for full details of the application process and important dates.

Looking forward to what looks set to be a fantastic event.
