Open Geographic Modeling
Annals of GIS Special Issue Call for Papers
Deadline: 30 September 2020
The earth’s environmental system is a complex and synthetic system that includes massive and dynamic chemical, biological, and physical processes as well as complicated human activities. Due to this complexity, it is essential to integrate knowledge from multiple disciplines for solving complex geo-problems (refer to problems that occur in the geographic world, for example, global warming, air pollution, site selection, urban expansion planning, traffic congestion and so forth). And along with the process of exploring suitable solutions for a geo-problem, integrated environmental modeling, collaborative modeling, and participatory modeling are all important and effective approaches. In addition, studies on Future Earth (FE), Virtual Geographic Environment (VGE), E-Science and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)-based modeling also promoted environmental modeling towards more comprehensive geographic modeling which generally involves environmental and social disciplines as well as information technology (GIS, Cloud computing, web services, etc.). In this context, we propose a Special Issue that targets on modeling our world based on an open idea, which means the modeling methods could be interdisciplinary or the modeling related resources could be open source.
Our interest is in papers that cover a wide spectrum of topics, including, but not limited to, the following:
Integrated environmental modeling
Relationship between information and real world
Geographic information analysis
Spatiotemporal analysis and modeling
Big data mining
Scenario simulation and modeling
Social media modeling
Artificial intelligence, GIS, and remote sensing
Hydrology, climate change, air quality, terrestrial carbon cycle, etc.
