Geospatial Technology for Sustainable Development

Geo Spatial Information Science Special Issue Call for Papers

Deadline: 30 April 2020

Geospatial information used the innovative tools and advanced technologies in mapping field. We had seen the increasing of the implementation of both in solving various real-life challenges: from healthcare facilities, to planning for a better transportation system, to monitoring climate changes. Combining with other technologies such as drones, AI, Big Data and cloud computing, geospatial technology can be further enhanced in its effectiveness. Driven by this advancement, we proudly present to you, the International Conference on Geomatics and Geospatial Technology (GGT) 2020 with the theme “Geospatial Technology for Sustainable Development”. This year edition aims to explore the potential lies beneath geospatial in sustainable development.

GGT 2020 aims to continue its success in gathering all geospatial communities from Malaysia and around the world to share and discuss as well as showcase the recent advancement in researches, projects and technology development. This annual conference also aims to exhibit the latest geospatial technology and services by various government agencies and private companies. The conference also meant to be a platform for discussion on interdisciplinary researches by researchers and students in geospatial-related areas. We are welcoming all to participate in this conference, widening our social network for international collaboration in future.

In order to materialize all those demands both from data providers and users, we anticipate and encourage all geospatial information communities and related professionals to get together in one big event – GGT2020. Many issues and solutions could be shared and discussed for the benefits of all. We encourage all to submit their abstracts and papers to be presented at the conference but not limited to:

  • Surveying and Geomatics
  • GPS and GNSS, Remote Sensing, Image Processing and Photogrammetry
  • LiDAR and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
  • GIS (2D and 3D)

Submission guidelines

Submission Process

Manuscripts should be submitted online at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tgsi. Submitted articles should not have been published previously, or be consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. All accepted manuscripts will be published on GSIS with Open Access (OA) for free. All article publishing charges (APC) will be covered by Wuhan University, so you can enjoy the benefits of Open Access at no cost. Perspective authors are recommended to prepare their manuscript by following the author instructions of the journal GSIS (Also see www.tandfonline.com/tgsi ). Now Geo-spatial Information Science (GSIS) is indexed by the ESCI and other databases (Scopus, DOAJ, CSCD, GeoBase).

  • Note: ESCI (Emerging Sources Citation Index), along with SCIE and SSCI, which is launched by Clarivate Analytics, now is as a part of Web of Science Core Collection – with the standard of high-quality and peer-reviewed publications. Articles in ESCI are highly searchable, discoverable, and citable, making the content important to scientific community and evaluators visible in the world. Journals in ESCI have passed an initial editorial evaluation and can continue to be considered for inclusion in products such as SCIE and SSCI.

Important Dates:
