Conference on Geospatial Data Processing
with special sections on
Archaeological Spatial Data Analysis
Urban Scene Understanding Based on GIS data
26-28 October 2020, Esztergom, Hungary
In the past decade, we have witnessed an explosion of new technologies for understanding and using spatial information in our environment. Airborne, terrestrial and mobile mapping systems equipped with laser scanners, calibrated cameras and navigation sensors are able to provide very accurate and high-resolution 3D measurement flows. However, due to qualitative and quantitative factors, conventional Geo-Information Systems (GIS) cannot efficiently utilize yet the available very dense 3D data, and the quickly evolving size of the databases means nowadays a real barrier for applications needing up-do-date semantic evaluation.
The goal of the Conference on Geospatial Data Processing is to bring together researchers from the academia and practitioners from the industry in order to address fundamentals of advances in data processing for geographic information systems and the new applications related to them. Special emphasis will be dedicated to two specific fields Archaeological Spatial Data Analysis and Urban Scene Understanding Based on GIS data. We welcome papers related to all aspects of the topic, including, but not limited to, the following broad subject areas:
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) for archaeological data analysis or urban scene understanding
- Spatial data classification, filtering, object detection
- 3D model reconstruction from GIS data
- Cultural Heritage Preservation and Documentation with GIS technologies
- Using GIS data for High-Definition Map generation
- GIS Sensor fusion
