An Integration of International Data for Global Studies
One of the challenge issues for understanding the changing global landscape of population, economy, and culture is the integration of international data. This presentation will discuss data sources, methodologies and technologies for the integration of spatial and temporal data. Those data sources include government statistics, census data, business data, survey data and spatial data at different administrative and geographical levels. It will introduce some online tools for data integration and analysis. It will present some comparative studies on the space-time analysis of population and industries in the US and China. The future directions for the integration of government statistics, census data, business data, survey data, spatial data and big data as well as their applications will also be discussed.
