Invitation: Colloquium Talk by Dr. Yingwei Yan on Using User-Generated Content for Agricultural Pest Management

We cordially invite all interested to our forthcoming talk in the GIScience colloquium next Monday, January 16, on agricultural pest management solutions based on pest observations from farmers. Dr. Yingwei Yan reports on how sensemaking algorithms which can be used to evaluate this kind of volunteered geographic information, and to make forecasts of pest infestations provided to the community. Assurance of the quality of data provided by the farmers is another important aspect here.
