Call For Papers: Special Issue of IJGIS on Distributed Geospatial Information Processing
Deadline: 31 December 2007
Developments in distributed computing, geospatial interoperability, and Web services technology are changing the way we use GIS. For example: 1) Google Earth and Microsoft Virtual Earth have changed how we explore geographic extent. 2) OGC developed multiple interoperable interface protocols to facilitate communication among GIS components that are widely used in assembling services, such as clearinghouses, web mapping servers, and geospatial web portals. 3) Evolution of Cyberinfrastructure for distributed computing is enabling us to conduct computing intensive research and applications not previously possible.
As a follow up to the success of Distributed Geospatial Information Processing (DGIP) sessions organized at the 2007 AAG annual meeting, Chaowei Yang & Rob Raskin will guest edit a January 2009 special issue of International Journal of Geographic Information Science (IJGIS) to capture the experiences gained in research, development, and education in this field. Topics include but are not limited to:
- Distributed Geospatial Processing architecture, modeling and data structure
- Geospatial Semantic Web and semantic interoperability
- Cyberinfrastructure and Grid Computing
- Interoperability practice and development
- Data Clearinghouses
- Geospatial One-Stop and other Spatial Web Portals
- Data Quality and Quality of Services issues
- Real-time data integration from distributed sources
- DGIP Applications
- DGIP Education
Papers up to about 6000 words in length are invited that conform to standard IJGIS author guidelines (see http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/13658816.asp ). Submissions will go through the normal IJGIS peer review process. The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2007.
Please submit paper through the IJGIS Manscript Central and select the special issue of DGIP by the specified deadline.
Inquiries regarding the special issue are welcomed and may be addressed to either of the guest editors:
Chaowei Yang (cyang3 at gmu.edu), Joint Center for Intelligent Spatial Computing, College of Science, George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, 22030, USA
Rob Raskin (raskin at seanet.jpl.nasa.gov), NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, 300-320, 4800 Oak Grove Drive, Pasadena, CA, 91109, USA.
