17th International Symposium on Spatial Data Handling, Aug.18-20, 2016  Beijing, China

International Symposium on Spatial Data Handling (SDH), one of the oldest GIS conferences, is a biennial international research forum for GIScience. It commenced in 1984 in Zurich, Switzerland, and has been held in more than ten countries ever since. The 17th SDH will be held on 18-20 August 2016 in Beijing, China. You are welcome to submit papers. Call for Papers and Special Sessions. Abstract and session proposal due: Feb.1, 2016

The International Spatial Accuracy Research Association (ISARA) awarded its quadrennial Peter Burrough medal to Dr. Michael F. Goodchild on July 10, 2012, during its biennial meeting in Florianópolis, SC, Brazil, the most recent of its International Symposia on Spatial Accuracy Assessment in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences. Awarded for the first time this year, the Peter Burrough medal is ISARA’s highest award for senior scientists, given in recognition of sustained outstanding contributions to the measurement, modeling, and management of uncertainty in spatial data, and named in honor of the late Peter A. Burrough. Dr. Goodchild is Professor Emeritus of Geography, University of California, Santa Barbara. The certificate accompanying his medal cites his long-standing contributions to theory and practice in addressing accuracy and uncertainty issues in georeferenced data, beginning with one of his 1980 papers, as well as his attendance at the very first Accuracy 1994 conference, his being selected a keynote speaker for both the Accuracy 1996 and 2008 conferences, and his serving on both of these latter conferences’ Scientific Committees. Dr. Goodchild’s inaugural Peter Burrough lecture was entitled “The accuracy of volunteered geographic information.”

URGENT CALL FOR PAPERS


 


 



Dear colleagues:

It is my pleasure to let you know that the continuation of our Commission has been approved by the IGU Executive Committee at the Tunis meeting in August, 2008. The new executive committee has been formed.  I am now the chair of the Commission for 2008-2012. Stewart Fotheringham is the Vice-Chair, and Pavlos Kanaroglou is the secretary.  During my chairmanship, I plan to expand our membership by actively engaging geographers in our initiatives and activities, and to become members of the Commission. In addition to advancing research in our field, I think it is essential to work with fellow researchers in other commissions to help solve their problems. To further break down the barriers, I also intend to co-organize activities such as workshops and conferences with other IGU commissions and non-IGU organizations to facilitate interactions and cross fertilizations. I, therefore, count on your support to materialize these initiatives.
To facilitate the administration of our website, I would like to let you know that the URL for our Commission has now been changed into:

http://ww2.science.mcmaster.ca/~igu-cmgs/

Ric Hamilton is the administrator of the website. The previous website at The Chinese University of Hong Kong will be kept running for a while to ensure continuity. It will be closed when the final transfer is stabilized.
I look forward to working with you to advance our mission.

Best regards,
Yee Leung
Chair
