Plotting the World : Tools to visualize solutions for ORMS problems using Geospatial data

Sean Grogan Polytechnique Montréal, Canada

One of the beautiful things in applied mathematics is solving problems applied to problems. Many of ORMS's classic problems involve the planning and analysis of objects in our great big beautiful world. After finding your optimal solution, visualisation is a great tool to quickly asses the quality and implementation of a solution. Plus they look great in journal articles.

This tutorial will cover some methods for making maps or plotting some form of spatial data for use in presentations, artices, or your loft. We will cover:

  1. Terms and tools of the trade
  2. Interactive workshop on creating a maps
  3. Where to find files and what they are
  4. Using your work in practice

Advanced registration is recommended if you wish to participate in the workshop!
