In a globalized world, countless research questions depend on the analysis of interdependencies. However, since these can only be analyzed with difficulty using classic statistical programs, these questions often remain unanswered or even unasked. This is where hin&weg comes in. hin&weg is an open source software for the analysis and visualization of origin-destination data. The application was developed in cooperation with municipal practice partners at the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography in Leipzig. In this brown bag lunch Jonathan will give you an introduction to the software and show you how to use hin&weg for different use cases, for example to analyze migration and commuting data, remittances, exports and imports, etc. If you would like to familiarize yourself with the software beforehand, hin&weg is available for free:

Jonathan Gescher is a research associate at the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography and is responsible, among other things, for maintaining the hin&weg software. Since April 2023, he is part of the PeriMobil project, which studies mobility patterns in peripheral areas. Mr. Gescher studied Business and Economic Law and International Area Studies at MLU Halle as well as Geography and Economics at the University of Leipzig. 


Visualise movement, population or population density data without knowledge of R, SPSS, stata, etc.

Interesting to:

Scientists who work with movement, population or interconnectedness data and want to visualise it. The event is for beginners and no previous knowledge is required.
