GIAN JNU Training Course on Spatial Data Analytics
26-30 December 2016, JNU, New Delhi
Invited Faculty: Prof. Shashi Shekher, Department of Computer Science, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA
A course proposed under the MHRD GIAN programme to be offered by the School of Computer and System Sciences, JNU
Overview: Spatial data analytics is concerned with analysis of data describing geographic phenomena (e.g., climate) or instrumented physical environment (e.g., roads, building). It is important for societal applications in sustainable development, energy, mobility, public safety, public health, as well as emerging location-based services such as local advertisement and mobile commerce (e.g., Uber).
Objectives: This course introduces the fundamental ideas and research challenges underlying the emerging spatial data analytics systems for spatial database management, spatial data mining, and spatial network engines underlying location based services.
Teaching and Learning Methods: 5 days x 3 hours (2 hours of lecture + 1 hour of tutorial) per day
Module 1: IntroductionModule 2: Spatial Query LanguagesModule 3: Spatial Networks and Location Based ServicesModule 4: Spatial Data MiningModule 5: Emerging Trends, Research Challenges
