Within the last ten years, the UM China Data Center has made lots of efforts in the development and distribution of government statistics, Census data, and GIS data of China. Those information provide a rich source for the study of population, economy, social environment and their relative changes in China. It has been a challenge how to efficiently integrate those space-time data, provide methodology for different research targets, and promote their applications in different fields. This presentation will present some recent development of spatial intelligence technologies for spatial data integration, data analysis, as well as their applications for China studies. The presentation will introduce the newly developed spatial explorer (China Geo-Explorer) as a joint effort by the University of Michigan China Data Center and Wuhan University. It will demonstrate how space-time data of different formats and sources can be integrated, visualized, analyzed and reported in a web based system. Some applications in population and regional development, disaster assessment, environment and health, cultural and religious studies, and household surveys will be discussed for China and global studies.
Lunch and drink will be provided. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (734)647-9610 if you need any further information.
