New Data for Geospatial Research
This is a special issue of IJGER, which focuses on theory, development, and application of new data for geospatial research. Here the “new” data refers to unconventional or newly acquired data that were not generally available in a couple of decades ago. If we call census and remote sensing data conventional data, Big Data can be considered as new data in this context, and it has opened up for new insights on geographic information and technologies. Any original papers addressing the theory, development, and/or application of new data for geographical and environmental research are welcome.
Reviews and revisions are currently under way, and accepted manuscripts will be published here one by one. When all the manuscripts are published, an introductory remark by the Editor will be added.
