GeoCultGIS – Geographical and Cultural Aspects of Geo-information: Issues and Solutions


Monday 17th June 2019, Limassol, Cyprus at AGILE 2019


GeoCultGIS Workshop Introduction

While some geo-datasets offer global coverage and spatial methods attempt to be generic, applications are considerably of local nature. Furthermore, local geographic and social-cultural idiosyncrasies lead to heterogeneity in data production practices and interpretation of abstract geographical concepts. These are limiting factors for the transferability of methods and theoretical approaches. While long acknowledged, these challenges are still pending solutions and questions regarding conceptual, formal, and operational approaches for considering the cultural and geographical aspects of geo-information remain open.

By bringing together researchers dealing with social-cultural and geographical aspects related to the production, usage and analysis of geo-information, the GeoCultGIS full-day workshop offers an opportunity for an inclusive and open discussion on the general conceptual, methodological, and empirical approaches for tackling such issues. This workshop will promote and advance the exchange of information and knowledge on the matter through keynote talks, short paper presentations and open discussion rounds.

GeoCultGIS Submission Guidelines

We encourage participants to submit conceptual, methodological, or empirical short papers (up to 3000 words manuscripts) discussing the cultural and geographical aspects of geo-information, in particular, but not limited to, subjects such as:
