Geospatial Resolution for Sustainability Solutions

Geospatial discovery and innovation have been undergoing an extreme digital transformation enabled by artificial intelligence and cyberGIS during the past decade. This transformational trend seems likely to persist into the foreseeable future. Meanwhile cyberGIS has emerged as a new generation of geographic information science and systems (GIS) based on holistic integration of high-performance and distributed computing, data-driven knowledge discovery, visualization and visual analytics, and collaborative problem-solving capabilities. This presentation explores the frontiers of cyberGIS and geospatial data science with several fundamental research problems addressed while a set of opportunities are identified for digital geospatial revolution to tackle an array of pressing sustainability challenges.
