Book Description

Geospatial data acquisition and analysis techniques have experienced tremendous growth in the last few years, providing an opportunity to solve previously unsolved environmental and natural resource related problems. However, a variety of challenges are encountered in processing the highly voluminous geospatial data in a scalable and efficient manner. Technological advancements in high-performance computing, computer vision, and big data analytics are enabling the processing of big-geospatial data in an efficient and timely manner. Many geospatial communities have already adopted these techniques in multidisciplinary geospatial applications around the world. This book is a single source that offers a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art, and future developments in this domain.
