6th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on GeoStreaming (IWGS) 2015
Date: November 3, 2015
Place: Seattle, WA USA

Aim and Scope:

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:

  • Spatio-temporal stream systems
  • Spatio-temporal stream query processing
  • Real-time mining of spatial and spatio-temporal data
  • Location-aware stream systems
  • Privacy preserving in mobile object databases
  • Traffic monitoring and prediction
  • Geosensing technologies and their application
  • Geosampling and probabilistic spatial stream query processing
  • Real-time geographical information extraction and retrieval
  • Geosocial networks
  • Main memory and/or real time indexing of moving objects
  • Real-time spatial data visualization
  • Spatio-temporal stream processing on cloud
  • Participatory spatio-temporal data streams and Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) systems
  • Use of hardware acceleration in real-time stream processing
  • The use of stream processing in traffic management, aerospace, earthquake physics, geodynamics, weather forecasting, asset management and scientific applications


This year there will be awards for best full paper and best short/vision paper at the workshop.

  • Have theoretical and practical skills in working with satellite data and classification algorithms within the ERDAS Imagine environment;
  • Explore the application of GIS to natural resource management; land development; forestry; agriculture; environmental management; and disaster management highlighting prospects & constraints;
  • Have an opportunity to share experiences of their specific work and to use RS/GIS for more productive and systematic approach in information management; and
  • Learn how to integrate GIS with remote sensing for evaluation, estimation and monitoring of natural resources.

Topics Covered

  • Resource Mapping: Demonstration on the application of multi-source data for resource inventory.
  • Resource Assessment: Demonstration of geospatial technology applications in land cover assessment, including assessment of soil erosion hazard and similar mass wasting occurrences.
  • Change Detection: Mapping and detecting changes using RS and GIS.
