Thematic Issue on “Advances in Theories, Data Management, Data Mining and Data Visualization to Support Big Data in the Environmental Sciences”

in Environmental Modelling & Software

Issue Editors: Amin Tayyebi, Keith C. Clarke, Bryan C. Pijanowski and Patrick Jantz

EMS Editor: Dan Ames


Submissions are invited for papers which address cutting-edge and innovative approaches, particularly regarding new tools, software or demonstrations of efficient techniques in practical cases to deal with specific types of big data in environmental sciences that cannot be addressed using conventional techniques. The following broader topics that provide cutting-edge and innovative approaches for using GIScience, remote sensing and technology to support big data in the environmental sciences may be covered:

  • Advances in theories.
  • Data management.
  • Data mining.
  • Data visualization. 

The thematic issue is open to submissions from a global audience in science and research and we would explicitly invite contributions of papers on relevant topics presented at the iEMSs 2014, 2015 and 2016 conference. This call is interested in papers that can summarize new challenges of big data that are required to be addressed in near future by the environmental sciences. Full papers will be selected based on how strongly the work to the big data themes outlined above.
