Abstract

Information and communication technologies (ICT), mobile devices location-aware sensors have triggered a new paradigm of the Internet of Things (IoT). A decade ago, the number of devices on the Internet exceeded the number of people on the planet, and, in 2008, the U.S. National Intelligence Council projected that IoT would be one of six disruptive civil technologies—as in 'by 2025 Internet nodes might reside in everyday things – food packages, furniture, paper documents, and more'. More recently, the proliferation of low-cost sensors, reduced costs of cloud-computing resources and increasing accessibility of artificial intelligence (AI) and open-source machine learning platforms, have combined to propel advancements and applications of IoT and GIScience. Working Group 6 of the ISPRS Commission IV (WG IV/6), 'Internet of Things, SDI and Spatial Decision Support', proposes this Special Issue of the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information, entitled, 'Geospatial Applications of the Internet of Things' to exchange the latest developments in IoT, SDI and spatial decision support systems. With foci of innovative geospatial applications of the IoT, we encourage submissions from perspectives of the thing (e.g., the state-of-art in sensors network and integration), the semantic (e.g., representing, storing, sharing, interconnecting, searching, and organizing (geo)information generated by the IoT), and the solutions (e.g., smart and connected communities, ecological and agricultural applications, etc.). We encourage contributions on (but not limited to) the following themes:

Theories, frameworks, and paradigms of geospatial applications of the IoT
Advancements in sensor networks and integration for geospatial applications
Geoinformation search, retrieval, sharing and representation from IoT, including multi-level spatial data infrastructure and web services
Spatial decision support systems with IoT
AI and machine learning with IoT
IoT, Big Data and Analytics: Challenges, solutions and potential
Geospatial applications of IoT in urban, ecological, health, business and agricultural systems
Geospatial education and capacity building efforts with IoT
Ethical and privacy considerations of IoT
