The increased availability of geographic data (often in massive volumes) together with the advances in spatiotemporal data management, integration, analysis, and visualization present an emerging need and opportunity: how to transform these massive volumes of geographic data into meaningful information about places, events, activities, and interrelations. The integration of space, time, and semantics provides the basis to infuse data with meaning and deepen our knowledge of complex natural and social systems and intricate interactions in space and time. This key research issue is also relevant to other cutting edge research themes such as Volunteered Geographic Information, Geospatial Semantic Web, semantic sensor networks, big data, linked data, etc. Context and granularity (spatial, temporal, and semantic) constitute additional dimensions of geographic data that are not fully explored and may provide valuable insights into this issue.
The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:
Participants are invited to submit a short paper (2000 to 3000 words) in the AGILE 2017 Conference short paper format. Short paper submissions will be reviewed and selected for presentation during the workshop.
Please make your submission anonymous and submit it as a PDF document via EasyChair
The Journal of Spatial Information Science (JOSIS) will host a special issue of papers coming out of the Workshop. An open call for full papers will be issued after the Workshop. Please note that special feature submissions undergo exactly the same peer review process as regular JOSIS submissions and must comply with JOSIS prior publications policy. Further details will be provided at the workshop.
