Computing in Geographic Information Systems

Narayan Panigrahi

July 10, 2014

Capable of acquiring large volumes of data through sensors deployed in air, land, and sea, and making this information readily available in a continuous time frame, the science of geographical information system (GIS) is rapidly evolving. This popular information system is emerging as a platform...

Scale in Spatial Information and Analysis

Scale in Spatial Information and Analysis

Jingxiong Zhang, Peter Atkinson, Michael F. Goodchild

April 15, 2014

Now ubiquitous in modern life, spatial data present great opportunities to transform many of the processes on which we base our everyday lives. However, not only do these data depend on the scale of measurement, but also handling these data (e.g., to make suitable maps) requires that we account for...

Big Data: Techniques and Technologies in Geoinformatics

Big Data: Techniques and Technologies in Geoinformatics

Hassan A. Karimi

February 18, 2014

Big data has always been a major challenge in geoinformatics as geospatial data come in various types and formats, new geospatial data are acquired very fast, and geospatial databases are inherently very large. And while there have been advances in hardware and software for handling big data, they...
