Call for Papers: Geospatial Data Analysis through Artificial Intelligence

With this Special Issue on “Geospatial Data Analysis through Artificial Intelligence”, we target at taking a combined method to AI solutions that includes not only algorithms for smart geospatial data analysis, but also environmental and social scopes, thus adopting a healthy collaboration between the Computer Science, Geoscience, Remote Sensing, Social Science, and Machine Learning societies. In this current era, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning approaches in specific had a transformative influence in fields such as NLP or computer vision, suggestively proceeding the state-of-the-art in problems like classifying unstructured data, or semantically segmenting contents. These identical methods can also enable a next generation of Geographical Information Systems (GISs), providing the capacity to belief spatial analysis with wild and adjacent human-level perception, this way facilitating location-based discovery and analysis of relevant information. With the progressions of deep learning algorithms, software and hardware technologies, scalable computation platforms, and availability of high-resolution geospatial data are empowering the fast-growing field of Geo-AI. This special issue (SI) targets to convey composed the modern investigation on this subject. Mainly, this SI inspires the growth and distribution of open Geo-AI tools that can be re-processed for GI-Science & Geo-Informatics research and education.

We request the community of professionals and researchers, interested in AI for geospatial applications and in the intersection of GI-Science and AI, to submit their research work in this SI: Geospatial Data Analysis through Artificial Intelligence”.

Topicsof interest include, but are not limited to: 

  • AI for object recognition and information extraction from geospatial images
  • AI for location business intelligence and spatial optimization and Spatial Data Analysis
  • AI for generating new Datasets in Geo Spatial domain
  • AI for smart conveyance, autonomous cars, Earth Observation Applications
  • Novel applications in AI in Geo Spatial Analysis
  • AI for Geographical Text Analysis
  • Spatio-temporal data processing and analysis
  • Geo spatial data processing and analysis
  • AI based object detection from point cloud and images
