Monday Seminar on Visualizing and Exploring Events from Sensor Networks

Title: Visualizing and Exploring Events from Sensor Networks

Speaker: Dr. Kate Beard

SIE/NCGIA Joint Seminar Series
336 Boardman Hall, University of Maine
4:00pm, Monday, January 31, 2011

Abstract: Sensor networks and other new technologies are generating volumes of data with both temporal and spatial components. Analysis and synthesis of these space-time data streams requires tools for discovery of patterns and structure in both time and space.  GIS has served well for discovery and analysis of spatial patterns and time series have been a workhorse for temporal display and analysis. Effective visual and exploratory methods that combine space and time dimensions have been more elusive. This presentation describes an approach for the abstraction of space-time series into events and an exploratory environment for the visualization and exploration of events

Kate Beard is a professor in the Department of Spatial Information Science Engineering at the University of Maine. She has been a research faculty with the National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis (NCGIA) since its beginning in 1989 and currently serves as the Director for NCGIA-Maine.  She also serves as Project Director for an NSF IGERT Sensor Science, Engineering and Informatics. Her current research interests include spatio-temporal data models, spatial information retrieval, and exploratory analysis and visualization of spatio-temporal
data.

Please join us for this presentation.  Refreshments will be available.

Four Out of Ten Top Paying Jobs for Women in IT

A recent CNN report indicates that of the top ten paying jobs for women, 4 out of 10 are in IT. See http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2010/news/1004/gallery.top_10_jobs_for_women/4.htmlCombining this with the “Best Jobs in America” previously which assessed job satisfaction, security, compensation and numerous additional factors and we see a great future for both men and women with high level skills in our disciplinary programs.
