We had a great first speaker in the series. We now move to the second seminar.
Our third speaker for 2021 - 23 September 2021
- Topic: Measuring the urban environment using street view imagery
- Speaker: Emily Muller
- Sign Up: RSVP
- Date: 23 September 2021
- Time: 9:00AM-10:00AM SAST
The efficacy of images to create quantitative measures of the urban environment has been explored in public health, psychology, social science, urban planning and architecture over the last 50 years. The ability to scale these measurements has become possible only in the last decade, due to increased urban surveillance in the form of street view and satellite imagery, and the accessibility of such data. In this talk, I will present a series of work conducted as part of my PhD and as part of the wider project, Pathways to Healthy Equitable Cities, which leverage information from images for understanding our urban environments.
