Dear POLS faculty and students
In CRMDA, we will be having a presentation that might be interesting for public policy analysts and folks who are interested in GIS. After that, we'll have some liquid refreshment at the R Bar on 6th street.
Please sign up for the announcement list "methods-l" so you will know about our offerings in the future (http://crmda.ku.edu/email-lists).
A strategic analysis of empty container logistics in Southern California using GIS and Spatial Optimization Ting Lei, Assistant Professor, Geography and Atmospheric Science
The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach is the largest port complex in marine container traffic in the U.S. The large volume of container traffic brings not only opportunities, but also a host of issues to the local communities, ranging from pollutant emission and noise to congestion on the roads and at the terminal gates of the port complex.
The objective of this study is two-fold. The first is to use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to estimate the amount of transportation associated with moving containers in the Los Angeles basin. The second is to use network analysis and spatial optimization investigate operational measures for alleviating the issues caused by the heavy container traffic (especially the empty container movement) in the basin.
