Special Issue on: “Big (Spatio-Temporal) Data-Driven Science”
Guest Editor: Dr. Sugam Sharma, Iowa State University, USA
Today, science is passing through an era of transformation, where the inundation of data, dubbed ‘data deluge’, is influencing decision making. The science is driven by the data and in this internet age, advances in remote sensors, sensor networks, common business practices and the proliferation of location sensing devices in daily activities have exploded the generation of disparate, dynamic and geographically
distributed data in recent years. The volume of the data has grown beyond the exabyte magnitude, and this large, complex, structured or unstructured, and heterogeneous data in the form of big (spatio-temporal) data has gained significant attention. The rapid pace of data growth through various disparate sources has seriously challenged the data analytic capabilities of traditional databases. The velocity of the expansion of the amount of data gives rise to a complete paradigm shift in how new age spatial, temporal and spatio-temporal data is processed.
Confidence in the data engineering of the existing data processing systems is gradually fading whereas the capabilities of new scalable data management and analytical frameworks for capturing, storing, visualising, and analyzing such mammoth data are evolving.
This special issue seeks high quality original research articles from data-driven researchers and practitioners that have the potential to advance the big (spatio-temporal) data science, both theory and practice.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
Big (spatio-temporal) data algorithms, applications, and challenges
Empowering geographic information systems (GIS) with big data
Big data in remote sensing and photogrammetry and computing
Big (spatio-temporal) data engineering on Hadoop ecosystem
