Welcome from the Chairs
3rd IJGI Webinar
The Power of Geo-Social Media
Social media as an effective crowdsourcing tool has been widely used for addressing geospatial issues, ranging from urban environments to public health. The social media data tagged with geoinformation play a key role in space related applications, tackling their challenges from a perspective of multiple dimensions. The three talks in this webinar will focus on applications and/or state-of-the-art technologies developed based on geospatial social media, showcasing the its power in geoinformation world.
