When and where?

Geomob London will be at 6:00 PM on Wednesday the 17th April 2024 in Lecture Theatre G22 (North-West Wing / Geography Dept.) at UCL.


Our format for the evening will be as it always has been:

  • doors open at 18:00, set up and general mingling

  • at 18:30 we begin the talks with a very brief introduction

  • Each speaker will have slides and speak for 10-15 minutes. After each talk there will be time for 2-3 questions.

  • We vote by show of hands for the best speaker. The winner will receive a SplashMap and unending glory (see the full list of all past winners).

  • We head to a nearby pub for discussion and #geobeers paid for by the sponsors.

The speakers:

  • Nigel Edmead, PLACE - Hyperlocal Mapping for Positive Change

  • Wil Waters, The Geospatial Index

  • Joe Leach, Welcome to Hollowtown - maps and rejoinders from housing legislation, squatting, census, airbnb, and the housing frontline

  • Robert Edwards, Do Androids Dream of Synthetic Sheep? Generating realistic spatiotemporal data for testing on hundreds of billions of records

More speakers to be announced, volunteers needed

The organizers:

Geomob London is organized by Ed Freyfogle and Steven Feldman


Geomob would not be possible without speakers and sponsors. Over the years we have had so many fantastic talks, spanning the range from inspirational to informative to weird and wacky. See the list of all the past speakers. Please get in touch if you would like to speak at a future Geomob.
