7th ACM SIGSPATIAL
International Workshop on GeoStreaming (IWGS) 2016
October 31, 2016,
San Francisco, California, USA
Nowadays, it is the era of “Big Data” where large amounts of real-time streaming data are emitted
from sensors, imagery and mobile devices. In addition to the temporal nature of this stream data,
various sources provide stream data that has geographical locations and/or spatial extents, such as
geotagging twitter streams, mobile GPS location streams, spatial temporal image streams, and so
on. On one hand, this amount of streamed data has been a major propeller to advance the state of
the art in geographic information systems. On the other hand, the ability to process, mine, and
analyze that massive amount of data in a timely manner prevented researchers from making full
use of the incoming stream data. The geostreaming term refers to the ongoing effort in academia
and industry to process, mine and analyze stream data with geographic and spatial information.
This workshop addresses the research communities in both stream processing and geographic
information systems. It brings together experts in the field from academia, industry and research
labs to discuss the lessons they have learned over the years, to demonstrate what they have
achieved so far, and to plan for the future of “GeoStreaming”.
