ISPRS TC II Midterm Symposium is held every four years in between two consecutive ISPRS Congresses. The aim of midterm symposiums is to bring together academics and professionals from the international community of spatial information sciences and engineering to present the latest research achievements and technological developments in the field. This year's symposium was held in Toronto, Canada from October 6–8, 2014. The topics and the theme on "Building Connections in GISciences for Future" were set to fulfil the goal of bridging the gap between geospatial theory and technology. Selected papers from the 2015 ISPRS TC II Midterm Symposium will be invited to submit a substantially extended manuscript for consideration for publication in this Special Issue. General submissions on the Special Issue topic will be also accepted. Submissions should have a focus on GIS systems analysis, design and technological implementation of new, cutting-edge geospatial concepts and theory.
Topics of interest include:
- Geospatial computation, geo-design and geospatial simulation
- Geographical decision support systems and decision theory
- GIS systems analysis, design and implementation
- Web-based methods and systems for spatial information dissemination
- GIS and applications (social, physical, environmental and health)
