    GIS in environmental decision making

    19:30

    Location: Halcrow Group Ltd, Burederop Park, Swindon, SN4 0QD

    Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are now commonly used to underpin decision making in environmental projects; constraint mapping for spatial planning, water resource management and flood risk management are just some of the sectors where such technology is now routinely relied upon.

    This meeting will include two presentations looking at innovative uses of GIS in environmental decision making, and will take a closer look at some of the key benefits associated with adopting GIS technologies.

    Evening visit to the Diamond Light Source

    18:30
    21:00

    Location: Diamond Light Source, Diamond House, Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Didcot, Oxon. OX11 0DE

    Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire. By accelerating electrons to near light-speed, Diamond generates brilliant beams of light from infra-red to X-rays which are used for academic and industry research.

    The visit will commence with a short introduction to Diamond and then a tour of the machine. We expect a visit will last around two and a half hours. Due to the size of the facility, during the guided tour there will be extensive walking involved, they advise all visitors to wear comfortable footwear. There are interactive demos explaining how the synchrotron works, examples of synchrotron applications and an opportunity to meet with some of the scientists who use the synchrotron.

    Numbers are limited to 20 so bookings will be taken on a strict first come basis.

    To book your place please email Neil Tytler
