Spatial data, specifically deals with the data related to space.As the data related to location is generated along with associated attribute data in huge amount due to localization sensors (GPS) and also due to widely usage of maps and digitized spatial data ,necessary computing infrastructure related to storage,modeling ,simulation , analysis and computing is required to handle and sustainably use the data to meet the urban challenges . Geo-spatial data generated from the smartphones and other sources is becoming a huge source for proper planning of urban activities like event management, traffic management,shopping pattern analysis,urban sprawl analysis e.t.c to name a few. The main challenges include efficient storage system ,computing algorithms and proper modeling and simulation approaches for accurate analysis of spatial data.
This book will provide the recent advancements in the area of spatial computing.This book will specifically deal with the recent frameworks, technologies,approaches, algorithms and computing mechanisms for handling locational or geospatial data.The book will help the researchers and practitioners to gain insight about the challenges ,issues and possible solutions in handling urban geospatial data.
