Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The ISPRS Tracking and Imaging Challenge 2014, TIC’14, is on until 27 July 2014. Details can be found at http://www2.isprs.org/commissions/comm2/wg8/tic.html. TIC’14 aims to stimulate research and creativity between communities such as image processing, spatial computing, and GIScience. TIC’14 requires that two types of data are linked in innovative ways, namely trajectory data as it is captured for example from mobile positioning sensors, smart cards, or e-tags, and image data as it is captured for example from tourist photos on Flickr, smartphones, CCTV, or car mounted cameras. Or you may wish to consider the field of wearable sensors. Should your submission be selected for presentation you are automatically invited to submit full papers for review to a special issue of this journal. Deadline for submissions for this special issue will be 15 January 2015. Guest editors will be Stephan Winter (Melbourne), Monika Sester (Hannover) and Alper Yilmaz (Ohio State).
