Second International Workshop on Mobile Spatial Information Systems - MSIS'16
August 15-18, 2016, Montreal, Canada

Although different, Spatial Information Systems (SISs) and Geographic Information Systems (GISs) are commonly used interchangeably. They are both about capturing, storing, analysing and displaying geo-referenced data. Thanks to considerable advances in
mobile devices (e.g., tablets and smartphones) and wireless communication technologies (e.g., Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 4G), Mobile Spatial Information Systems (MSISs) are being designed and implemented in a wide variety of applications including
environmental monitoring, healthcare, energy, and transportation. The rapid expansion of pervasive computing systems, including Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) readers, radars, Internet, and satellites are posing serious challenges for MSISs in handling huge amounts of potentially heterogeneous and inconsistent data while creating opportunities for acquiring the right data, from the right spatial area, at the right time, for the right purpose.
MSIS’15 aims to gather latest research breakthroughs leveraging the complementarity of spatial data management techniques, mobile computing technologies, and GIS tools toward the creation of new and reliable spatial services on mobile devices.

The workshop will gather leading researchers from academics and industry to present new ideas, original research results, and practical development experiences.

- Spatial Data Acquisition
