    Special Issue on GIS Spatial Data Sharing


    With the increasing demand for spatial information, information sharing has become an inevitable trend. In a simple way, data sharing means that different users can read others' data and perform various operations and analysis. The content of spatial data sharing mainly includes three aspects: spatial location information, spatial relationship and attribute information. In order to realize the real data sharing in geographic information system, it is necessary to solve the bottleneck problem of multi format and multi database integration of geographic information data.


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

    • Significance of spatial data sharing
    • Spatial data sharing technology
    • Spatial data sharing model
    • Spatial data mining
    • Spatial data interoperability
    • Spatial data storage management
    • Geographic location and big data
    • GIS database design
    • Application of spatial data sharing

    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 Spatial Data Sharing” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
