Special Session:
Urban Geoinformatics -  Citizen Engagement and VGI Analytics for Smart Cities

Scope of the Special Session

In the past few years, geographic information generated by citizens (volunteered geographic information - VGI) has emerged as an additional information source for better understanding urban processes and designing innovative solutions towards the vision of the so-called “smart cities”. However, while much research has been carried out to study VGI and develop concepts related to smart cities, the contribution of a GIScience perspective to better understand and practically improve city management relying upon citizen engagement and VGI still need further investigation. This special session discusses the idea of tackling this issue using a variety of human and technical sensors (in-situ and remote) together with VGI to produce unseen information layers in near real time.

We invite contributions from practically oriented research, which propose innovative analytical methods as well as concrete implementations in a variety of target areas including environmental monitoring, urban resilience and disaster risk reduction, public health surveillance, coordination of action forces, or public safety.
