- Geospatial Data Acquisition by Remote Sensing Technologies for Cartographic Purposes.
Best papers in the Special Session Digital Earth for Smart Solutions
A special session "Digital Earth for Smart Solutions" was held with the support of International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE). The papers of Prof. Jie Shen and Dr. Alexey Noskov presented during the Special Session “Digital Earth for Smart Solutions” are recommended to International Journal of Digital Earth (IJDE) for the peer-review procedure.
Two presented works are carried out in the frame of the WeGovNow project:
- Noskov A. (2018, Best Paper): Computer Vision Approaches for Big Geo-Spatial Data: Quality Assessment of Raster Tiled Web Maps for Smart City Solutions. Proceedings 7th International Conference on Cartography and GIS, Vol. 1, Editors: T. Bandrova & M. Konecny, Publisher: Bulgarian Cartographic Association, ISSN: 1314-0604, pp. 296-305, June 18-23 DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.1346671
- Noskov, A.; Zipf, A.; Rousell, A. (2018): Data Quality Concept for E-Government Web-Map Based Services. Proceedings 7th International Conference on Cartography and GIS, Vol. 1, Editors: T. Bandrova & M. Konecny, Publisher: Bulgarian Cartographic Association, ISSN: 1314-0604, pp. 306-315, June 18-23 2018 DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.1314215
The proposed concepts and solutions will be deeply integrated with the OHSOME big spatial data analitic platform, which is developed as a part of the HeiGIT project by the GIScience research group.
