Academic report by Professor Bin Jiang:"Why Is Euclidean Geometric Thinking So Wrong for Maps and Mapping in the Era of BIG Data?"

2017/06/20

应地理科学学院陈旻教授邀请,瑞典Gävle大学江斌教授来我院进行学术交流,于2017年6月20日在地科院411会议室作题为“Why Is Euclidean Geometric Thinking So Wrong for Maps and Mapping in the Era of BIG Data?”的学术报告。此次报告会由闾国年教授主持,陈旻教授及学院相关领域的教师和研究生参加了本次学术报告会。

报告中,江斌教授提出了分形的思想。与集中于独立测量事物的欧几里德几何思维所不同,分形几何集中于研究将多样的事物划分成这样一个缩放等级层次:最小的占大部分、最大的占小部分,以及位于最小和最大之间的一部分。如果在大事物里有更小的事物存在,或者更小的事物比大的事物概念重复多次,则称一个集合或者模式是分形的。分形这种新形式的定义,为大数据时代地图制图开辟了新的视野。最后,在闾国年教授的主持下,与会师生与江斌教授开展了积极的讨论与交流,与会师生获益匪浅。本次学术交流活动在热烈的掌声中顺利结束。
