Executive Summary

Geographic information processing is expanding in several dimensions in the past decades: 1) Earth observation, ground sensing, and other data collection techniques accelerated exponentially the capability for collecting petabytes of data on a daily basis. 2) Research in the past years produces computing intensive algorithms and models for analyzing the data and simulating scientific phenomena. 3) The information collected is expanding from Earth surface to the atmosphere, ocean, and solid Earth, and forming the foundation to investigate complex problems by integrating the information in the geospatial or Geoinformation arena.
