A country you can't put in a box.

Talk by Emily Selwood (She/Her) πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦

Sunday from 4:50 PM - 5:10 PM in Stage C

A talk about the difficulties of geospatial analysis when the country you are interested is on the edge of the world map. We'll go over some background before showing what happens when you try and draw a box around this country and the issues this causes everyone from blury satellite views to navigation failing. And why it happens. The east and west edge of the classic Eurocentric world map, with the prime meridian down the middle, are both the same place, this causes some interesting effects.
