CFP: Symposium on Big Earth Data Advancement

Big Earth Data enables the unprecedented advancement of Earth observations in a wide spectrum
of data collection, analytical tools and the implemented societal values. It reshapes the geospatial
landscape and brings new opportunities and challenges in GIScience research, education and
transformational activities. This symposium calls for interests in our CPGIS community to share
the cutting-edge GIScience technologies and to address the challenges in featured environments
(e.g., urban and coasts) for sustainability development. Tentative sessions include:

Session 1: Drone technology for improved Earth observations and surveillance
Session 2: Google Earth Engine for remote sensing of Land Change Science
Session 3: Big Earth Data in urban environments
Session 4: Big Earth Data on coasts and islands
Session 5 (Panel session): Education and Career Readiness in Big Earth Data

If you are interested in participating in any session, please contact the organizers with your
information (names, affiliations, paper titles) before Wednesday, January 15, 2020. The template
of extended abstract and Instruction to Authors is available at conference website.
