Real-time GIS for Smart Cities - Special issue IJGIS

Closing Date  Wednesday, January 31, 2018

We cordially invite you to submit original and high-quality manuscripts to the IJGIS special issue of "Real-time GIS for Smart Cities." This special issue aims to link GIS to smart cities in terms of real-time sensing. We look for research that reports new approaches considering the fusion of conventional data sources with real-time GIS data, as well as new space-time analytics to advance smart city research and implementations.
