This month’s blog is going to look at an issue that has been in the news quite a bit recently – the price of hospital parking.

Parking charges still remain in England and as expected, vary hugely from location to location.

Autumn is approaching and as we look back on the summer with fond memories we are also looking back at one of our early blogs. Keen Emu blog readers may remember we had an intern Alice Millard who wrote a blog in May 2016 all about fly tipping. We thought it was a good time to revisit this topic as it is still a massive and costly issue that has not gone away. To optimise our analysis we have used Location Insights Explorer to analyse and visualise the latest data on fly tipping.
Emu Analytics is very proud, honoured and excited to be one of ten companies from over 400 across 40 countries to be selected by International Airlines Group (IAG) to join its third Hangar 51 global accelerator programme in collaboration with British Airways, Avios and IAG Cargo.

The Aurora Location Analytics Platform has recently been used for an important study into Air Quality within the City of St. Albans.
Jake, our Junior Web Application Developer and newest member of Emu, has been very busy lately taking a leading role in the development of our new product, Aurora. And as we do with every new joiner, we challenged him to write a blog that showcased his interests, is based on location insights and uses our technology. As Jake is a bit of a language buff he chose to create a Toponomy map of the UK, and as he needed to display a lot of location data in a performant environment he chose the visualisation components of Aurora to do it on.
