Abstract

Sustainable cities are key to addressing the global challenges of urbanization, including population growth, energy efficiency, food security, waste management, and transportation planning. According to the United Nations’ World Urbanization Prospects, 68% of the world’s population is projected to live in urban areas by 2050. This report notes that sustainable urbanization depends on the successful management of urban growth in order to ensure access to infrastructure and social services, adequate housing, education, health care, and a safe environment for all (United Nations 2018). The integration of geographic information systems (GIS) and the Internet of things (IoT) provides a powerful framework for designing smart, secure, and sustainable cities. Information and communication technologies (ICT), mobile devices, and location-aware sensors that are integrated in IoT networks enable person-to-object and object-to-object communication (Liu 2018).

Working Group Six of the ISPRS Commission IV (WG IV/6), “Internet of Things, SDI, and Spatial Decision Support”, announces this Special Issue of the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information, entitled, “Integrating GIS and Internet of Things (IoT) in Sustainable Cities”, so as to exchange the latest innovations and developments in the integration of GIS and IoT for sustainable cities. 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, citizen science, ecological, and agricultural applications).
