Global Reference Grids for Big Earth Data
Big Earth Data Special Issue Call for Papers
Deadline: 31 October 2019
The vast increase in the acquisition and availability of geospatial data at both local and global scales presents some major challenges to make these data discoverable, accessible and interoperable. Global reference grids are spatial data infrastructures designed to try and solve these challenges. The journal “Big Earth Data” is seeking contributions for a special issue, “Global Reference Grids for Big Earth Data”, targeting recent research in the design, specification and application of global reference grid systems. Big Earth Data is jointly published by the International Society for Digital Earth, Taylor & Francis Group and other partners as a sister journal of the International Journal of Digital Earth.
The editorial team of Big Earth Data invites submissions of original research and recent studies focusing on the design and application of global reference grid systems. Submissions may be in the form of review/discussion papers, research papers, data papers or technical notes. Potential topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Global tessellation methods
- Geospatial data management using global reference grids
- Discrete Global Grid Systems
- International Standards and global reference grids
- Global Reference Grids in practice
- Data fusion and interoperability using global reference grids
Accepted papers are peer-reviewed and published in a special issue of the Big Earth Data.
- 31 October, 2019 Paper submission online
- 31 December, 2019 Decision to authors
- 1 March, 2020 Revised paper submission
