Geocomputation for Social Sciences

Geo-spatial Information Science Special Issue Call for Papers

Deadline: 30 November 2018

A selection of high quality works will be recommended to the Special Issue on Geocomputation for Social Sciences. In recent years, there have been a lot of domestic and foreign research institutions on data science, and most of them focused on natural and social science or engineering data. However, it lacks of the research concerning geospatial theory based on the method of spatial analysis. With the development of Geographic Information Science and the urgent need for geospatial data in the era of big data, the research fields of spatial economics, spatial econometrics and spatial economic analysis have been developing rapidly, which show obvious global and multidisciplinary features.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles, as well as review articles, to this Special Issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Theories and models of geocomputation for social sciences
  • New algorithms and architectures of geocomputation for social sciences
  • Multiple spatial interaction network analysis of geocomputation for social sciences
  • Spatiotemporal big data management of geocomputation for social sciences
  • Spatiotemporal data mining and intelligent service of social geography information
  • Exploratory spatiotemporal analysis of social geography information
  • Accuracy and uncertainty of geocomputational models for social sciences
  • Geostatistics, spatial statistics, and spatial econometrics
  • Applications of geocomputation for social sciences (in health, medical informatics, urban studies, criminology, transportation, etc.)
