VGI Geovisual Analytics Workshop
In the past years Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) has emerged as a novel form of user-generated content, which involves active generation of geo-data for example in citizen science projects as well as the passive collection of data via the user’s location-enabled mobile devices. The interpretation, visualisation and usage of such multi-source data is challenging because of the large heterogeneity, the differences in quality, the high update frequencies, the varying spatial-temporal resolution, subjective characteristics and low semantic structuring. The Geovisual Analytics Workshop will investigate how the general concepts of Visual Analytics can be used for the spatio-temporal analysis and interpretation of VGI.
Potential submission topics include, but are not limited to:
- Efficient representation and modelling of geospatial big data
- Quality assessment and uncertainty visualisation of VGI
- Scalability and Multi-scale views of VGI/social media data
- Real-time visualisation and spatio-temporal analysis of data streams
- Visual exploration of Location-Based Social Networks data
- Analysis and visualisation of spatial–temporal trajectory data
- Joint analysis of VGI/social media data originating from different data sources
- Location privacy issues in Geovisual Analytics

The program is now available here.
[New!!] We are calling for abstracts submissions ~2500 characters (ca. 300 words) consisting on a brief description of ongoing research plus 1 or 2 visual illustrations (e.g. figure, etc.). The submission should be in PDF format. Authors with accepted abstracts will be invited for a presentation in the workshop.
Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished short papers of work in progress up to 4 + 1 pages for references. The workshop proceedings will be will be publicly available on the website of the workshop. It is a condition of publication that accepted papers are presented by one of the authors. All accepted papers will be presented during the workshop. Presenters must register before the camera-ready deadline to avoid withdrawal from the symposium proceedings and programme. Please use the templates provided on this website: IEEE Templates.
