The city is the darling of geographical data science. Population density often begets data density, so urban data science provides fertile ground for the development of new methods and models across many problem domains that span sociology, economics, political science, epidemiology, and geography. Specifically, urban data science is experiencing a significant bout of high-profile attention as exciting new dynamics are captured with increasing detail. This moment provides an immense opportunity for cutting-edge quantitative geographical research, with recent books, high-profile papers, and new research institutes & environments springing up at multiple institutions around the emerging domain of geographic data science. Thus, we aim to help define this new research frontier by fostering a wide-ranging series of sessions showcasing novel geographic data science for dynamic urban processes. We are seeking all folks interested in many of the different core topics in urban geographic data science.
