Building Bridges, International Conference for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial

This Conference Proceedings is a collection of selected papers and posters submitted to the Academic Program of the International Conference for Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G 2016), 24th to 26th August 2016 in Bonn, Germany. Again geospatial open source software was the focus of a well-attended international conference flanked by presentations on open standards and the open data movement, a meeting place for open communities. Similar to previous FOSS4G conferences at the national and international level, the academic papers and posters cover an extensive wide range of topics reflecting the contribution of the academia to this field by the development of open source software components, in the design of open standards, in the proliferation of web-based solutions, in the dissemination of the open principles important in science and education, and in the collection and the hosting of freely available geo-data.

Geoinformation supporting Crisis and Disaster Management: Applied Geoinformatics for Society and Environment 2017

The 8th International Summer School of Applied Geoinformatics for Society and Environment (AGSE2017), which was co-organized by University of Applied Sciences Stuttgart, University of Tehran, German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) held at the Kish International Campus University of Tehran, Kish Island from April 29 to May 04, 2017. The overall goal of this conference was to take into account the current state-of-the-art in Geosciences related disciplines such as photogrammetry, remote sensing, and geo-information topics to a wide range of application areas, with significant focus on "Crisis and Disaster Management". During this summer school different practical and educational workshops have been conducted by outstanding and internationally known researchers on different fields of geospatial data acquisition, analysis and application. Generally, about 23 articles and works in progress and about 11 workshops were presented during five days. The scope of the presentations covered the latest science and technology developments as well as recent applications and research activities for crisis and disaster management, risk assessments, monitoring natural and man-made disasters, based on earth observation or ground based techniques as well as the other contribution of geoinformatics, remote sensing, and planning to preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation of disasters. The overall success of AGSE2017 summer school was demonstrated by the impressive attendance, with more than 50 participants from universities and research organizations, but also from application oriented institutions, primarily from Iran but also from twelve other nations such as Germany, France, The Netherlands, Colombia, Kenya, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, India, Nigeria, Nepal, and Tanzania.

Continuing Geospatial Education: Applied Geoinformatics for Society and Environment 2014

Applied Geoinformatics for Society and Environment (AGSE) series of conferences and summer workshops started in 2008 in Trivandrum, initia ted by the initiavtives of Dr. Pradeepkumar (University of Kerla) and of the Alumni Representa tive of Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences, Prof. Dr. Franz-Josef Behr. After the successful follo w-up conferences in Stuttgart (2009), Arequipa (2010), Nairobi (2011), back in Asia (Johor Ba hru, Malaysia, 2012, and Ahmedabad, India, 2013). The objective of the conference is to 'take the benefits of geographic information technologies to a wide canvas of applicable areas, particularly in the realms of development, environment and social well-being'. Since 2008 we – scientists, practioners, students, alumni – continue this path to empower one another in a participative way. I wish this event a successful exchange of knowledge crossing borders and disciplines.

The Geospatial Momentum for Society and Environment: Applied Geoinformatics for Society and Environment 2013

This International Conference is organized with the aim of promoting geospatial technologies for society and environment and 'to offer an interdisciplinary, international forum for sharing knowledge about the application of geoinformatics with focu s on the Millennium Development Goals'. AGSE is about empowerment and participation, and offers a platform for scientif ic contributions from academia and researchers about recent developmen ts in geospatial information technology and applications. The AGSE2013 brought together specialis ts, practitioners, academ ics, students and the public to this common platform. There were 125 pa rticipants from six countries and 20 states of India, in this four-day event which comprised presentations based on a variety of topics and key note addresses from various renowned scientists. Each theme was monitored by the Chair and Co-Chair. The best papers were awarded during the valedictory function.

Geoinformation: Catalyst for planning, development and good governance - Proceedings Applied Geoinformatics for Society and Environment 2012

Sharing knowledge about the application of Geoinformatics with focus on application and on developing countries is the objective of the proceedings of AGSE 2012, co-organized by Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences, Germany, and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The objective of this international interdisciplinary forum is to 'take the benefits of geographic information technologies to a wide canvas of applicable areas, particularly in the realms of development, environment and social well-being'. AGSE 2012 therefore pledges itself to align with the aims of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. It also aims at internationalization of education and has become a venue where academicians, researchers, students, scientists and technologists from across the globe can come together in a very open environment of scientific debate and come out enriched from such encounters. The affiliations of the authors in AGSE2012 cover 21 nations from Germany, India, USA, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Austria, Philippines, Italy, Nepal, Egypt, Bolivia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Tanzania, Sudan, Kenya, Zambia, Lithuania, to Somalia and Romania and cover themes of current relevance to geoinformatics, i.e., Earth Observation Systems, Information Extraction, and Photogrammetry, Advances in GIScience and Current Developments, Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Management, Environmental Issues and Sustainable Development, Disaster and Risk Management, Geoinformatics and Health, Urban and Regional Planning, GIS in Education, and Experiences and Business Development.
