2019 FOSS4G Bucharest Talks speaker: Mykola Kozyr
Reconsidering Default. Why default parameters matter and how to make them meaningful
Working with the software for geospatial data visualization or analysis, we always spend time to change styles, define the extent, grid size or influenced area. It is not just a time-consuming activity and a threshold for newcomers - for lot’s of cases using default parameters could mislead the researcher and return inappropriate results. It’s time to change it over.
From visualization to analysis. Stop using heatmaps to discover spatial patterns
It is a common thing when pattern analysis cases are just about visualizing the features. The talk would start with a gentle introduction into pattern analysis algorithms. I would focus on the benefits of using analysis in comparison to visualizing methods, present cases and show pitfalls in usage and implementing these algorithms.
