ASPRS Track Title — Big Data: How it’s used

Description — As the technology driving GIScience evolves and the Cloud becomes more accessible, larger, more complex datasets are being developed daily and the need to analyze, manage, and store these “big data” is becoming an ever present challenge in the geospatial industry. Workflows are emerging that allow GIScience professionals to analyze these large datasets using geo-processing, programming, and data-mining/geo-analytics in order to support decision making and project goals. Organizations from across industries are undertaking more projects supported by big data, and these cutting-edge projects represent some of the most exciting things happening in GIScience today.

Please extend the call for presentations to your colleagues, co-workers, and other contacts. Here is the verbiage you can send directly to others who may be interested:

The ASPRS-RMR theme for this year is “Big Data: How it’s used.”  There are no geographic constraints on the presentations; just tell us about any project you did where big data of any kind was used in any capacity.  This can include general large data projects, LIDAR data, geo-processing, modeling, programming/development, system architecture, among others.

Also please keep in mind that presenters are offered a discounted registration fee ($100 off the 1-day rate, $200 off the full conference).

If you have an abstract to submit, please do so using this link: http://gisintherockies.org/abstract-submission

Let me know if anyone has any questions!
