New Data for Geospatial Research


The Editors invite submission of papers that can be considered for inclusion in the 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. The type of new data includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • Big Data
  • Drone data
  • Citizen scientist data
  • Assimilated or downscaled climate data
  • Newly available remote sensing (-driven) data (e.g. ESA Sentinel, GlobeLand30, etc.)
  • Fieldwork data
  • Simulation data
  • Interview data
  • Time-line
