Title: Spatial Intelligence for Knowledge Management and Analytics
Geographic concepts, cartographic principles, and GIS platforms represent resources for knowledge management and analytics that are still largely untapped. Spatial intelligence represents the marriage of spatial thinking with computational learning and interactive visualization that focuses on the provision of context as a unique form of value creation. Some examples of these efforts in the academic and business domains will be reviewed.

Title: Demarcating place in cultural geo-analytics
Cultural geo-analytics (CGA) studies the geographical dimension in the production and consumption of cultural objects, relying on digital data and spatial methods. Given the conceptual and empirical centrality of place in CGA, I will outline the main challenges and desiderata in place representation, addressing the question: is place a model problem or a data problem?
