Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Economic data analysis is a very important part in a decision-making process. Today, the importance of the geospatial component inherent in most economic data is rapidly increasing. Therefore, the added value of introducing geospatial aspects to economic data analyses is highly appreciated. Many economists are implementing the spatial aspect more and more in their research, which creates strong ties between economy and GISscience (and related disciplines); and vice versa.

This Special Issue strives to establish a scientific platform for sharing results of an empirical research in the field of “spatial economy”. We invite all contributions that focus on spatial exploration and explanation of (socio)economic data of a contemporary world. Paper submission may be focused regionally as well as at different geographical scales, prefarably using quantitative data-driven or methods-driven approaches. Possible application areas include (but are not limited to):

- Social economy, demography, human capital;

- Spatial distribution of economic activities;

- Urban environment, cities, and spatial planning in cities;

- Spatial and economic evaluation of regional disparities;

- Spatial and economic development of rural areas;

- Health geography and its economical aspects;

- Transportation and economic commuting;

- Small and medium entrepreneurship;

- Environmental issues and spatial economy;

- Renewable energy and green policies;

- Innovation activities and R&D;

- Quality of life.
