2. Data Science and Geographic Information Systems

Chair:

Almir Karabegović (University of Sarajevo-Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, BHAAAS)

Co-chairs:

Jasminka Hasić Telalović (School of Science and Technology, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina)

Mirza Ponjavić (International Burch University, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina)

DESCRIPTION

A special thematic Symposia in Technical and Natural Sciences: Data Science and Geographic Information Systems is an international forum for scientists, engineers, and students to present their latest research and development results in innovative and interdisciplinary applications of advanced technologies.

In the field of Data Science, we solicit contributions both in fundamentals (machine/deep learning, data science statistics, data quality, algorithms, optimization …) as well as applications (domain-driven data science and analytics practice, decision-making, case studies, social and economic impact modeling as well as ethics, social issues, privacy, trust, and bias)

Also, experts like geospatial data analysts, geospatial intelligence analysts, market research analysts, GIS analysts, locational analysts, and research data scientists are invited to share their findings.

With the new categories of users such as Data Scientists, GIS is starting to happen more outside of traditional GIS tools, allowing more sophisticated spatial analysis to take place in connection with new Data Science & Big Data solutions. This shift is allowing Spatial Data Science to emerge as a discipline with greater interactivity with Open Source & Cloud technologies.

Spatial Data Science (SDS) is a subset of Data Science that focuses on the unique characteristics of spatial data, moving beyond simply looking at where things happen to understand why they happen there.

DESCRIPTION

The realm of Geodesy and Geoinformatics is a captivating blend of data analysis, spatial insights, and cutting-edge technology. In an era marked by remarkable advancements in instrumentation and computational capabilities, this field has emerged as a dynamic and highly engaging profession and scientific domain. Geospatial data, now considered among the most valuable commodities in today’s market, takes center stage.

Over recent years, technological progress has transformed Geodesy and Geoinformatics into a multidimensional landscape encompassing theory, science, engineering, technology, observations, and practical applications. The digitalization of contemporary society would be unimaginable without the essential contributions of geospatial data professionals who collect, maintain, and utilize this data in collaboration with experts from diverse technical and social backgrounds.

Our session aims to showcase a diverse array of investigations and outcomes, pushing the boundaries of geodetic problem-solving techniques, parameter estimation, and geospatial data analysis. This symposium is motivated by the desire to present pioneering contributions that demonstrate the application of novel methodologies to real-world data across various branches of geodetic science and practice.

We eagerly anticipate presentations that delve into a wide spectrum of topics, including:

  • Reference Frame Challenges,
  • Precise Positioning,
  • Intricate Gravity Field Dilemmas,
  • Earth’s Dynamic Characteristics and Rotational Dynamics,
  • Remote Sensing Applications,
  • Geoinformation Management,
  • Geoinformation Systems,
  • Cartography,
  • Land Management Practices,
  • Ethical Considerations in Geospatial Endeavors,
  • and Intriguing Intersections with other Diverse Disciplines.

Join us in this dynamic exploration of Geodesy and Geoinformatics, where the convergence of technology, data, and expertise promises to reshape the way we understand and interact with our ever-evolving world.
