The exponential growth and availability of stream data with geographical locations and/or spatial extents has been a major propeller to advance the state of the art in geographic information systems. The ability to process, mine, and analyze that massive amount of data in a timely manner prevented researchers from making full use of the incoming stream data. The geostreaming term refers to the ongoing effort in academia and industry to process, mine and analyze stream data with geographic and spatial information.
This workshop addresses the research communities in both stream processing and geographic information systems. It brings together experts in the field from academia, industry and research labs to discuss the lessons they have learned over the years, to demonstrate what they have achieved so far, and to plan for the future of “GeoStreaming”.
We encourage researchers from academia and industry to submit papers that highlight the value of GeoStream data processing, analyzing, and mining on topics that include, but not limited to the following:
This year there will be awards for best full paper and best short/vision paper at the workshop.
IMAGIN is proud to announce our upcoming hands-on LiDAR workshop. The workshop is scheduled for Wednesday November 4 at Lansing Community College. The workshop is open to both members and non -members. Oftentimes organizations obtain LiDAR data but don’t know what they can do with it. Come and join your colleagues for a workshop that will show you how to use tools to work with LiDAR data and for a handson session with real data. Bring your laptop, as software and data will be provided.
