Throughout the years, spatial analytics and data have been nurtured by path-breaking scholars from a variety of backgrounds. But who are these people? What reflections do they have on their experience? How have “Spatial Analytics” and “Data” changed, and what is their future?
The #SADinterviews series, co-sponsored by the Royal Geographical Society, brings long-form, informal conversations with influencers of our generation in spatial analytics and data, providing a window into their insights on the evolution (and revolutions) of the field.
