International Workshop on Supporting Future Earth with Global Geo-information
This joint workshop will present the latest developments within global spatial data production and sharing, exchange successful application experiences of global geoinformation, examine up-to-date user requirements and key gaps, and identify major challenges. It aims at promoting multi-disciplinary collaboration towards providing reliable global geo-information to support Future Earth.
Topics and Abstract Submissions
An extended abstract on the following topics is requested:
- Scientific vision and latest progress of Future Earth from national and international perspectives, especially by utilizing geo-information;
- Definition of challenges for and requirements on global geo-information and services concerning Future Earth programs;
- Latest developments of global geo-data sets (Earth observation data, Digitalelevation, Land cover, environmental monitoring, ecological data);
- Representation and visualization of Global geo-spatial information;
- Policy and technology for global geo-information sharing and service;
- Progress of open geo-spatial software and integrated application with open geodata sets;
- Big data analysis of global spatial and non-spatial information;
- Applications of GlobeLand30 and other global geo-information in global understanding, environmental change analysis, dynamic modeling and transformational development;
- Applications of global geo-data sets for disaster risk analysis and information service;
A special issue isof International Journal of Digital Earth (IJDE) is planned and will be published in the beginning of 2016 as the output of this workshop. A call for full papers for this special issue will soon be issued.
