See you at IUSSP to talk about the fantastic work we do at WorldPop! (plus Demotrends and R-Ladies)

As IUSSP is approaching, I’m looking forward to talk more about fine grid scale mapping research at WorldPop (University of Southampton) and Flowminder.

I will present my research on  the 30th of October in session 5 at 8:30am Integrating spatial and statistical methods in demographic research, meeting room 1.41 and 1.42.

Prof. Andy Tatem will host a side meeting Geospatial Demography: Combining Satellite, Survey, Census and Cellphone Data to Provide Small-area Estimates on the 29 October 2017, 8:30-16:00.

and  will be contributing to the Cape Town R-Ladies chapter Saturday 4 November (details here) with a talk on R-Ladies and data visualization in ggplot2. Come talk to us and become an R-Lady, we are looking forward to sharing our experiences.

A few Demotrend(ers) will also be presenting at IUSSP, come talk to us 🙂

See you in Cape Town!

All the graphics have been realized in R using maptools library for maps and ggplot library for graphs.

The working paper will soon follow.

Location, location, location! Why space matters in demography and why we should care.
