Environmental and Urban Challenges

  • Vasily Popovich
  • Christophe Claramunt
  • Manfred Schrenk
  • Kyrill Korolenko


  • To consider the development of Geographic Information Systems science with a specific focus on environmental and urban challenges

  • Includes the modeling, analysis, information processing and visualization of geographical information with a specific application to: Environmental management; GIS and the Arctic sea; Urban GIS; and Global warming

  • The book reflects problems of multi-disciplinary approaches to monitoring and urban planning and surveillance

  • The Workshop Proceedings also reflect some conceptual problems of advanced GIS development and GIS applications like: GIS ontologies; GIS data integration and modeling; GIS data fusion; GIS and real-time monitoring systems; GIS algorithms and computational issues; and Novel and emerging marine GIS research areas

About this book


The Workshop Proceedings reflect problems of advanced geo-information science with a special emphasis on environmental and urban challenges. The Proceedings incorporate papers presented by leading scientists doing research on environmental issues from modeling to analysis, information processing and visualization. As well as practitioners engaged in GIS and GIS applications development. The Proceedings pay close attention to the problems of scientific and technological innovations as well application opportunities such as getting environmental and global warming problems under control, as well as the monitoring, planning and simulation of urban systems with respect to economic trends as related to: Artificial intelligence; GIS ontologies; GIS data integration and modeling; Environmental management ; Urban GIS; Transportation GIS; GIS data fusion; GIS and corporate information systems; GIS and real-time monitoring systems; GIS algorithms and computational issues; Landscape studies; Global warming; GIS and the Arctic sea; Novel and emerging GIS research areas; Maritime and environmental GIS; and Coastal GIS.
