Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis

Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis
Due to launch September 2015 Exciting changes to our MRes programmes are underway! Our MRes Advanced Spatial Analysis and Visualisation programme is being improved to reflect the data-oriented and research-focussed nature of the course, and with that comes a number of changes, including a new name: MRes Spatial Data Science and Visualisation.

In Mysterious Pattern, Math and Nature Converge In Cuernavaca, Mexico, a “spy” network makes the decentralized bus system more efficient. As a consequence, the departure times of buses exhibit a ubiquitous pattern known as “universality.” (Photo: Marco de Leija) In 1999, while sitting at a bus stop in Cuernavaca, Mexico, a Czech physicist named Petr Šeba noticed young men handing slips of paper to the bus drivers in exchange for cash.

International Programs The Technical University of Munich offers an array of courses of studies whose lectures are held partly or completely in English language. Courses in English Master's degrees completely taught in English. HAUGEN/ZOHAR How can new methods of production benefit old users? 1st prize, Invited Competition, Uppgrading outdoor space, Health care centre Askøy Municipality, Completed 2012 Department of Computer Science: Marta Kwiatkowska Interests My research is concerned with modelling and analysis methods for complex systems, such as those arising in computer networks, electronic devices and biological organisms. The analysis methods that I investigate include simulation and formal verification, with particular emphasis on quantitative verification of probabilistic systems. My work spans the whole spectrum, from theory, through algorithms to software implementation and applications.

MIT-Singapore design center creates free software tool to analyze cities as spatial networks Network analysis — the mathematical analysis of relationships between elements or actors in a complex system — has become popular among transportation planners and spatial analysts, but its use remains relatively limited among architects and urban designers, whose day-to-day work demands more visioning than analysis. Now, researchers at the joint MIT-SUTD International Design Center (IDC) have created a free network analysis plugin for Rhinoceros 3-D modeling software, one of the most popular software platforms among architects and urban designers. The new Urban Network Analysis (UNA) plugin enables urban planners and architects to describe spatial patterns of cities using mathematical network analysis methods. The free plugin-in offers tools for modeling pedestrian flow along networks, locating facilities at optimal places, measuring spatial accessibility between numerous origins and destinations, and detecting alternative travel routes, along both 2-D and 3-D networks.
