SDSC22 Workshops:
Helen McKenzie

Location Intelligence for First/Last Mile Delivery Analytics

Helen Mckenzie, Geospatial Advocate at CARTO

Join by Gladys Kenyon & Juanra Ramón Selva Royo who will be talking about the collection and analysis of data from idealista, the leading real estate portal in Southern Europe. They will guide you through an exploration of the 2018 real estate market in three major Spanish cities, analysing spatial patterns, creating visualisations and modelling house prices. Close

Miguel Álvarez

Powering Cloud-based Spatial Analytics for Retail with CARTO

Miguel Álvarez, Lead Data Scientist at CARTO

More info

How can I characterise my stores with external data? What factors are driving higher sales in specific restaurants? Where can I find locations of high revenue potential where I'm not threatened by competitors? Join Miguel Alvarez (Lead Data Scientist at CARTO) in this workshop, where he will showcase some of the key functions of the Analytics Toolbox and how you can utilise spatial indices, advanced analysis functions, and map visualisations to run an end-to-end spatial analysis in Retail, natively in the cloud.

This is a hands-on workshop, so be ready to run your own analysis in BigQuery! Close

Diversity program

Having a diverse group present at #SDSC22 is a priority for us, and for that reason we are setting aside 30 tickets to ensure we attract attendees from groups who are typically underrepresented at Data Science or GIS events. This includes but is not limited to: women, underrepresented backgrounds, people with disabilities and LGBTQ.
