Foundation models for geo-spatial temporal data processing and its applications

With the rapid development of various aerial and spaceborne acquisition devices, such as high-resolution optical cameras, synthetic aperture radars, laser scanners, and oblique photography cameras, the rapid and accurate acquisition of precise and effective information from geo-spatial temporal data has become a pressing need in the fields of geoscience, as well as a significant challenge faced by geographic information modeling and applications.

Foundation models, also known as large models, refer to the models with a large number of parameters built using deep learning techniques. Foundation models often require large amounts of computing resources and data to train, and generally show excellent performance on a variety of tasks. Foundation models are of great significance in the processing and application of geo-spatial temporal data, as they can enhance the efficiency, accuracy, and reliability of data processing, and facilitate interdisciplinary knowledge sharing and integration.

This special issue focuses on the above-mentioned issues, and welcomes theoretical and applied papers that extensively utilize various foundation models for processing geo-spatial temporal data. The contributions should match with the following topics, but not limited to:

  • Processing of geo-spatial temporal data, such as LiDAR point cloud, Radar data, remote sensing imagery, etc
  • Multi-modal foundation models for geo-spatial temporal data processing
  • Fine-tuning foundation models on geo-spatial temporal data processing tasks
  • Zero-shot and few-shot learning with geo-spatial temporal data processing foundation models
  • Dynamic object perception, including detection, tracking, and classification using foundation models
  • HD map generating and updating using foundation models
  • Large-scale geo-spatial temporal datasets for training foundation models
  • Privacy and security concerns in applications of foundation models
  • Societal impacts, responsibility, and the future of foundation models
  • Foundation model applications, including autonomous driving, intelligent robots, and city modeling
