COM.Geo 2012 Keynote:

A Promising Future of Computing for Geospatial Technologies

The explosion of the power and sophistication of computing applications in
the past few years has revolutionized the way we live and work. This marked
trend is of especial significance for geospatial computing, which directly
relates to the very foundations of our society and essentially embraces all
the diversification of its activities. Geospatial information, already
important in many scientific and engineering disciplines, is increasingly
becoming an integral component in consumer-driven technologies. How to
further improve or enhance geospatial information processing, organizing,
analysis, and visualization? Especially, handling rising flood of digital
data from many difference sources puts serious technical and scientific
With rapid progress of information processing and multiple disciplines,
there are more and more promising computing technologies, which could be
employed to solve these problems. At present, cloud computing, mobile
computing, visual computing / GPU computing, business intelligence, and
social computing have been playing key roles in geospatial applications.
Some latest computing advancements, such as big data computing,
heterogeneous computing, Internet of Things (IoT) / sensor computing, and
bio-computing, have great potentials for the effective realization of
information processing in the geospatial environment.
This talk highlights the impacts of these current and prospective computing
technologies on the future of the geo-world. Our consideration is intended
to bring fresh thoughts to explore new directions for geospatial research
and development. The talk also provides a vision of the '.geo' term and a
combined outlook for both computer and geospatial communities, i.e., how
computing technology is changing the landscape of geospatial applications
and how diverse geospatial information processing requires the change of
various computing technologies. Read more

COM.Geo 2012 Emerging Tech Panels+:

Realizing the Geospatial Potential of Mobile, IoT and Big

*By OGC, Microsoft, Oracle, Skyhook Wireless,
      GE Energy/MapFrame Mobile Solutions, Skyhook Wireless*

What happens when you have connected sensors in everyone's pockets, homes,
vehicles, workspaces, street corners, shopping areas, and more? With the
convergence of Mobile Computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the
ability to gather and analyze this Big Data, the availability of massive
amounts of information will continue to be gathered and you can expect the
unexpected to happen.
The themes of this panel are driving development in information technology,
but what is the intersection with geospatial? Location determination and
use of location for context are core capabilities of Mobile and IoT.
Knowing your location along with nearby Points of Interest (PoIs) and
Indoor maps provide a new level of spatial awareness and decision making.
This information will be used and viewed in new ways including Augmented
Reality (AR). Social computing with geospatial checkins provides a rich
picture of the social environment. With embedded computing becoming even
more ubiquitous, Sensor Webs will provide opportunistic sensing of the
physical environment. Geospatial filtering is one of the most effective
methods to extracting information from these big data streams. These
streams will continue to grow, e.g., mobile 3D video at incredibly high
resolution. Data Fusion to combine multiple data sources will create new
capabilities many based on geospatial processing.
How can we realize the full potential of these technological capabilities
in regards to geospatial? Read more

Cloud Computing and Big Data Computing

*By Microsoft, Nokia, GWU/COM.Geo, Booz Allen Hamilton, U.S. DOT-FAA *

The amount of data each organization deals with today has been rapidly
growing. However, analyzing large datasets commonly referred to as “big
data” has been a huge challenge due to lack of suitable tools and adequate
computing resources. Why are organizations, both in public sector and
private sector, so keen on unlocking business insights from all structured
and unstructured data? What is the current state of big data solutions and
service providers? How effective are some of the solutions that have been
put into real world practices? What’s the current state of cloud computing
technologies? What impacts have cloud computing technologies available in
public clouds and private clouds had on the way organizations addressing
big data challenges? How to secure big data in the clouds? What are the
future roadmaps for cloud-based big data solutions, especially for
geospatial related applications? Read more

Cloud / Big Data Computing for

*By ICF International , Air Force Research Laboratory, Booz Allen Hamilton,

The ever growing necessity for Big Data processing within the industry,
government, and specially within defense applications causes the need and
requirement for the fast development of new technologies. In addition, the
protection of Big Data can be a serious problem because security is
commonly an afterthought during technology development, and the
exponentially increasing rate at which new data is generated presents many
challenges. Read more
