ISPRS WG IV/7

Geo-Data Management

Our Mission

ISPRS working group IV/7 brings together interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners from all over the world to share knowledge and define new branches of research in geo-data management.

It enhances research including DBMS, OGC standards, multi-dimensional databases (cubes), streaming and sensor data management, point cloud databases, spatio-temporal data management, and BIM-GIS integration to support sophisticated applications such as Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, BIM, mobile and 3D/4D GIS, and last but not least smart and sustainable cities. The working group appreciates theoretical research as well as research and development results from industry and authorities.

To this purpose, the WG organises workshops as an open forum to exchange latest research results in theory and practice of geo-data management.

The WG will cooperate with WG IV/1 on Multi-Dimensional Modelling (7D), WG IV/2 on Ontology, Semantics and Knowledge Representation, and has direct interfaces to WG IV/8 on Geocomputation, WG IV/9 on GeoVisualization, and WG II/3 on Point cloud processing. The WG will disseminate research results through ISPRS Journal, Annals, and Archives.

Terms of Reference

The working group investigates new ways to manage n-dimensional geometric, topological, and semantic data handled by DBMS from a broad range of sources such as sensors, BIM, GIS, mobile devices, and others. By doing so it advances the enhancement of standards for metadata, data, and services as well as data integration from different disciplines.

The working group advances interfaces to other commissions and working groups such as WG II/3 on Point Cloud Processing, WG IV/1 on Multi-Dimensional Modelling, WG IV/2 on Ontology, Semantics and Knowledge Representation, as well as to WG IV/8 on GeoComputation and WG IV/9 on GeoVisualization.

  • Review technical progress and OGC standards for Geo-Data Management.
  • Develop new concepts to store and retrieve Big Geo-Data for knowledge discovery.
  • Advance knowledge in geo-data access methods, geometric and topological relations, geo-data aggregation, integration and scalability.
