ISPRS WG IV/3

Geo-computation and Geo-simulation

Our Mission

ISPRS Working Group (WG) IV/3 aims at promoting high-performance, reliable and knowledge-based Geocompuation and Geosimulation techniques to model and analyze complicated space-time process and to support decision-making in real applications. In order to achieve its objectives, the WG plans to organize conferences, workshops, seminars, and webinars, and will promote collaborative and cross-border research. The WG also plans to establish an active community of members for exchanging innovative ideas, practices, and resources in relation to the theme of the working group.

Terms of Reference

The following terms of reference describe the scope of the activities of the WG:

  • Promote high-performance Geocompuation/Geosimulation techniques for large-scale network optimizations, such as facility location-allocation and transport infrastructure planning;
  • Explore reliable Geocompuation/Geosimulation techniques to produce robust and consensus solutions to complicated geographic problems with various sources of uncertainties;
  • Explore knowledge-based Geocompuation/Geosimulation techniques by integrating data-driven knowledge towards smart geographic problem solving;
  • Develop new complex network analysis methods to detect the evolving patterns of geographical networks, to analyze its vulnerability, reliability and resilience, and to understand scaling laws of urban man-made or natural phenomenon;
  • Explore and promote the use of agent-based simulation and cellular automata in modelling geospatial processes and study their validations;
  • Work towards an effective integration of Geocomputation/Geosimulation techniques in spatial decision support systems;
  • Work on OGC standards for Geocomputation/Geosimulation (e.g. Web Processing Service).
