    Special Issue on GIS and Cloud Computing


    With the development of geographic information system (GIS), it has developed from the initial computer-aided cartography technology to the geographic information service based on cloud computing and big data, integrating all aspects of human society, such as smart city, resources and environment, transportation, business and finance. The driving factors of the development of geographic information technology are mainly information technology and application needs. Cloud GIS increases the spatial and temporal analysis capability of GIS, and solves the problems of data-intensive, computing-intensive, space-time-intensive and high concurrent access in the field of geographic information.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring GIS and cloud computing. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • GIS and big data
    • 3D GIS
    • Cross-platform interoperable GIS
    • Cloud GIS and grid GIS
    • GIS services
    • Spatial data parallel computing
    • Distributed storage of spatial data

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – GIS and Cloud Computing” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
