Call for Papers
THE GEOSPATIAL WEB - How Geo-Browsers, Social Software 
and the Web 2.0 are Shaping the Network Society


You are cordially invited to submit chapters for an upcoming book on the
Geospatial Web, published by Springer in the Advanced Information and
Knowledge Processing Series. By integrating cartographic data with
geo-tagged knowledge repositories, the emerging Geospatial Web will
revolutionize the production, distribution and consumption of media
products. This edited volume will bring together high quality contributions
on the technical foundations of the Geospatial Web, present information
services and collaborative environments built on top of geo-browsers such as
Google Earth and NASA World Wind, and investigate the economic and societal
impacts of such knowledge-intensive applications. A particular focus of the
book is the integration of geospatial and semantic technology, for example
to extract geospatial context from unstructured textual resources. Possible
topics for submissions include but are not limited to:

- State-of-the-art and emerging trends of geo-browsing platforms
- Knowledge acquisition and management in a geospatial context
- Knowledge relationship discovery and management; e.g. matching 
  geospatial relationships with semantic or temporal relationships
- Knowledge-intensive, location-based services
- Marketing of products and services via the Geospatial Web
- Annotation and ontology services as enablers of the Geospatial Web
- Natural language processing to extract geospatial context
- System architectures of dynamic, distributed geospatial applications
- Platform connectivity (mash-ups, add-ons, XML/RDF exchange formats)
- Collaborative authoring via geo-browsers 
  (Web 2.0 extensions, social software)
- Geospatial environments for knowledge workers
- Tracking the behavior of users navigating the Geospatial Web
- Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research on geospatial interfaces
- Case studies of geospatial applications in various domains
  o Mapping of environmental indicators (sustainability)
  o Geo-temporal news browsers (media industry)
  o JIT information retrieval agents for destinations (tourism)
  o Emergency response simulations (crisis & disaster management)
- Societal implications (global awareness and identity, 
  impact of virtual communities)
