- Rogues Gallery of Spatial Autocorrelation Seminar lead by Art Getis
- Stan Openshaw was a name missing from Arts talk. Not that Stan was rogue, but he was revolutionary. He also worked on geographical correlation.
- Stan's work on spatial clustering was making great strides in the 1980s. Art suggested that his recent work on spatial clustering dated 2006 was preliminary work!
- Openshaw et al developed a Geographical Correlates Explanation Machine (GCEM) and later a Geographical Explanations Machine (GEM) which looked at combinations of variable values across a range of spatial scales.
- Art recognised Stan's contribution and realised that he should add this to his story. He also mentioned that he maybe had Stan wrong back in the day, and was perhaps sorry that he didn't do more to recognise Stan's work then.
- I mentioned the Stan Openshaw Festchrift and film and the GISRUK 2012 Special Session that we had to commemorate Stan's work and career :-)
