Track your contact's travel

Did you ever wonder whether your project parters manage to have more fancy business trips than you? Well, within the scientific community, there is a tool that can help you answer the question effectively: Eventseer.net!

Until recently, Eventseer.net was just a database collecting conference calls, locations and program committee information. It was used by the researchers on the clever 10% of the community to search for conferences in interesting locations, and to keep statistics about the people on the program committees.

However, Eventseer.net now added a number of interesting statistical functions to the service:

  1. You can track a scientist over a time line, measuring his or her travel activity;
  2. You can generate a map of a particular scientist’s travel patterns.

The database, of course, is only aware of public events. But it’s a start, isn’t it? You can track your competitor, your PhD advisor, or the scientific diva on your project!

Here’s a tutorial on how to take advantage of the new functions:

However, as of today we have not heard of any plans with Eventseer concerning the inclusion of target person’s lecturing schedules as another colored overlay in the graphs.
