Call For Papers

The workshop aims to bring leading researchers and practitioners from a variety of fields and operating on data collection, processing, storage, and visualization to present and promote their latest research and development works and discuss current trends, applications, and challenges related to Geospatial Big Data (GBD). We particularly solicit original research contributions, position papers, practical development experiences, and surveys addressing the topics that include, but not limited to:
• Geospatial information acquisition and dissemination methods
• Hazard management and GBD
• Security issues in acquisition and dissemination of geospatial data
• Privacy issues in GBD
• Trust issues in GBD
• Legal issues in acquisition and dissemination of geospatial data
• Uncertainty in GBD
• Geospatial Data quality issues
• GBD life-cycle and interoperability
• Semantic heterogeneity issues in GBD
• The impacts of GBD in social networks
• The role of social networks in enhancing GBD
• New concepts and theories in GBD
• Volunteered geographic information (VGI) and GBD
• Crowdsourcing and GBD
• GBD analytics and processing
• GBD for improved decision-making and Business Intelligence
• The impacts of big data on designing Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
• GBD and hazard management
• GBD and pattern discovery
• Open data
• Unstructured data
• Smart GBD
