Geospatial IG


Group details

Case Statement: 
IG Established

The Geospatial Interest Group is a domain oriented interest group to coordinate and build synergies on topics related to geospatial data. Though there has been lot of   developments and advances in geo data collection through mobile communications, sensor platforms, spatial search, and pervasive computing but still, the inter-disciplinary research needed to transform raw data into useful intelligence, to improve the planet's environmental, economic and societal well being, remains constrained by a range of barriers - disciplinary, organisational, historical, and a non-existent or non-rigorous approach to quantifying uncertainty in collected datasets.
