Description

The analysis of moving phenomena has become a significant focus of Geographical Information Science (GIScience) with an emphasis on collecting, managing, and analyzing movement data to understand the underlying processes associated with moving objects. The advent of technologies like GPS has allowed researchers to track the precise movement of individual objects (both living and otherwise) at fine spatial and temporal scales, allowing for an almost continuous examination of how individual objects move through their environment. Detailed tracking can also be collected by recording moving objects as they pass predefined points in space. In animal ecology, camera traps are used to observe animals passing a location and are used to estimate species distributions. Likewise, for human subjects, transportation networks are analyzed by observing the number of cars passing an intersection or the number of passengers entering or leaving a train station. These types of movement flows can be categorized as Lagrangian and Eulerian, respectively, and while both are used to measure movement, they do it in fundamentally different ways.

This session aims to bring together researchers who study movement from the differing perspectives of Lagrangian and Eulerian, to further build the community of scholars who study movement phenomena. We invite researchers who research movement (human, animal, or otherwise) from either a Eulerian or Lagrangian perspective to present their work at this session.
