Speaker information

Patrick Weber, UCL

Part of the UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) seminar series.

As one of the leading 'world cities', London is home to a highly internationalised workforce and is particularly reliant on these sources of foreign direct investment (FDI). In the face of increasing global competition and a very difficult economic climate, the capital must compete effectively to encourage and support such investors. Through a collaborative study with London's official foreign direct investment agency, Think London, the need for a coherent framework for data, methodologies and tools to inform business location decision making became apparent.

This presentation will discuss the development of a rich environment to iteratively explore, compare and rank London's business neighbourhoods alongside ancillary data.
