10 Geoscience Alliance Conference Attendees will be chosen to attend this special data workshop.
Participants will use Google Maps to help develop and deliver a special GA Conference Workshop for the larger conference group that will take place during the conference. Participants will be looking at vehicle emissions and explore how the Google Maps Fuel-Efficient Route Options feature can support a clean environment.
Participants will have a chance to tour laboratories at the University of Minnesota and meet with faculty from the Computer Science Department. Learn about current research using Big Data sets from computers within vehicles and what it can tell us about fuel efficiency and creating more fuel efficient vehicles.
This workshop will be particularly useful for students in Computer Science, Engineering, GIS, Sustainability and other majors who are thinking about graduate programs in those fields or how they might use data science in their careers.
