Space-time prisms, I wish I knew how to quit you

On May 29th, I was honored to receive the 2015 Research Award from the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science.

Below is a link to the PDF of the slides for my presentation upon receiving the award at the UCGIS annual symposium in Alexandria, VA.  I review 25 years of scholarship on space-time prisms by myself and others, and try to explain why I find those things so fascinating.  It also contains references to key papers in the literature:
