Geospatial IG


Group details

Suchith Anand, Peter Baumann, Luciene Delazari, Andrea Perego, Chris Pettit
Case Statement: 

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. 


Recent Activity

14 Mar 2017


My name is Dewayne Branch.
I need a letter of support from this group as I am submitting my fellowship
application where I want to be a part of this group and the health data
I want to become an expert in linking environmental data, health data from
sensors, drones, or any other disparate systems for a data intelligence or
data fusion that can lead to better predictive analytics or at least set-up
a virtual geospatial library/data center that could support such.

Re: [rda-dtr-wg][rda-pid-ig][rda-collection-wg] CFP: Persistent Identifier session at EGU 2017

Thanks, Tobias, for sharing this CfP. I'm forwarding your message to the
Geospatial IG, where it is definitely of interest (although the
submission deadline is quite short).

RE: RDA Transportation WG Case Statement

Hi all,
If you are interested in transportation research data, please contribute to the proposed RDA Transportation WG case statement. Right now, the organizers seek to understand the vision of the transportation research community, needs, and proposed mission for the WG. The original deadline was today, but as no one has yet contributed, the deadline will be extended to Dec 2. I'd like to keep things moving, especially to be able to meet up and possibly present at relevant upcoming meetings (TRB 2017 in January, RDA Plenary 9 in April).

RDA Transportation WG Case Statement

Dear colleagues,
As members of the RDA Geospatial and Quality of Urban Life Interest Groups, the proposed Transportation Data Working Group wants your expertise and interest from project initation. If you'd like to shape RDA's engagement on transportation data, please contribute to the case statement draft for the proposed Transportation Data WG (more information below). If you wish to join the proposed leadership team or contribute in other ways, please be in touch with me via email or phone (contact info at end of email).
Many thanks!
