Global Spatial Grids and Cloud-based Services

11-12 Nov. 2013, Xuzhou, Jiangsu, China

The Global Spatial Grid (GSG) is an important spatial data model/structure for global spatial data organization, integration, management, visualization, sharing and location based services . Parallel computing and cloud environments are providing new solutions for GSG to better serve global mapping, multidimensional visualization, geospatial analytics, dynamic representation and collaborative services. A workshop on the global spatial grid and web/cloud-based services will not only benefit the scientific researchers, system developers and service providers, but also facilitate the development and applications of virtual globes and web/cloud based geospatial services. This event is jointly run as a WebMGS 2013 and DMGIS 2013 workshop.


The topics will focus on, but are not limited to the following areas:

  • Global spatial grids on the planet Earth surface and systems
  • Digital Earth and virtual globes for geovisualization and geoanalytics
  • Web and cloud-based geospatial services
  • GEOSS data integration and shared access
  • 3D/4D geospatial modeling and dynamic updating
  • Global spatial analysis and simulation
  • Parallel geocomputation and geovisualization
  • Social and organizational issues in web-based and collaborative environments
  • Geospatial Service Web

Organized by:

  • ISPRS COMMISSION IV/5 - Web and Cloud Based Geospatial Services and Applications
  • China University of Mining & Technology (CUMT)

Co-sponsored by:

  • ISPRS WG VI/1- Web-based Resource Sharing for Education and Collaborative Research
