MoveTK: the movement toolkit

A library for understanding movement

Aniket Mitra
MoveTK is a reusable, well tested, high performant, feature-rich library that incorporates state of the art algorithms for computational movement analysis. The library is designed to be extensible such that it can be adapted for various movement analysis tasks. The library has been developed as part of a collaboration between HERE Technologies, Eindhoven University of Technology and Utrecht University under the Commit2Data program. This talk is intended to showcase the scalability of MoveTK to large geo-spatial data sets. Moreover, through visualisations, we will demonstrate the various movement analysis algorithms that are available in MoveTK. Any scalable movement analysis task can be based on three fundamental building blocks: (a) the representation of (geo-)spatial movement data (b) the shape and specifically geometric aspect of movement and (c) algorithms that have theoretical bounds on their time and space complexity. Therefore, we will present the design decisions adopted in MoveTK, that allows seamless interoperability between these fundamental building blocks.

OSGeoLive is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Lubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything. It is composed entirely of free software, allowing it to be freely distributed, duplicated and passed around. It provides pre-configured applications for a range of geospatial use cases, including storage, publishing, viewing, analysis and manipulation of data. It also contains sample datasets and ...

Iaso is a platform created to support geo-rich data collection efforts, mainly in public health in emerging countries. The key feature that it supports is that any survey is linked to an organizational unit that is part of a canonical hierarchy. Each one of these org units can have a location and a territory. The mobile data collection tool can be used to enrich this hierarchy with additional GPS coordinates, names corrections, etc ... which can then be validated by officials of the ...

After moving to Minsk, I pondered on making a local map for my neighbourhood, with all the shops and amenities. People would visit it on the web and see where are things. Two years passed, I didn't make it. And only in December I've got an idea that would work. A community does not need no maps. What it needs is conversation. So I made a map app 2.0: one that doesn't rely on 1) web, 2) maps. Of course inside it's all about geo.

We will be working on data from the oficial source (Bolivia's Organo Electoral Plurinacional) on both the Presidential Elections 2019 and 2020: on the Recinto level of aggregation, excluding data from outside of Bolivia. We will then apply over the datasets some of Pythons Pysal and R tools for Spatial Analysis, side by side. Think of it as a two flavoured (and pure Open Source) solved geospatial exercise.

The longest flow path is one of the most important geospatial parameters that is used for hydrologic analysis and modeling. However, there are not many available GIS tools that can compute this watershed parameter. At the same time, there have been almost little to no efforts in improving its computational efficiency since its first, to the presenter's best knowledge, introduction by Smith (1995) when the geospatial data resolution was relatively coarser. In this talk, the presenter introduces a ...
