The first full assessment of GLOBE’s global representativeness analysis system is now published online [download PDF]. Last week (Aug 4th-6th), GLOBE made its return to the conference circuit in Washington, DC at the 5th International Conference on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application (COM.Geo). The material presented is drawn from the publication “GLOBE: Analytics for Assessing Global Representativeness“, and is the first of the technical papers describing this analysis from GLOBE’s computing sciences group. The 20 minute presentation highlights the need for representativeness analysis as a way to demonstrate an unbiased sample in a metastudy analysis, outlined the analytical and statistical tools used in GLOBE, and gave the attendees — both live and virtual — a virtual tour of the GLOBE system.
COM.Geo promotes leading-edge geospatial research and applications thought their yearly conference series, and publication by ACM and IEEE Explore. This year’s conference included keynotes and panel sessions from leaders in this multudisciplinary field, including Oracle, nVidia, US DOT and DOE, and a show of the MIT Diverless Car. Technical sessions included submissions on a variety of geospatial research topics, from big geo-data, geo cloud computing, geofencing, LiDAR, and more.
