Geospatial semantic, ontology and knowledge graph

Big Earth Data Special Issue Call for Papers

Deadline: 31 May 2019

The big Earth data depends on different acquisition methods, such as earth observation, ground monitoring, deep exploration, simulation calculation, real-time activities of people, voluntary collection and so on. It comes from different application purposes, scenarios, standards and processing methods. In this context, the biggest challenge of the integration, sharing and mining of big Earth data is the heterogeneity of data semantics. The state-of-art semantics, ontology, linked data, knowledge graph and others provide a basis for solving the problem of semantic heterogeneity of geospatial data. Therefore, with the theme of "Geospatial Semantics, Ontology and Knowledge Graph", this special issue calls for papers of innovative methods and typical applications related the following topics.

Potential topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
(optional, but recommended)

  • Geospatial semantic mining on ubiquitious network
  • Geospatial semantic reasoning and information retrieval
  • Geospaital ontology alignment, fusion and integration
  • Crowdsourcing or volunteer geospation ontology construction
  • Geospatial data ontology and applications
  • Geospatial linked data
  • Geospaital knowledge graph
  • Geospatial data, models and computation sharing
