Call for Chapter Proposals: Handbook of Research on Geographic Information Systems Applications and Advancements


The geospatial technology field is a fast-paced, high growth industry that is involved in a variety of fields, including military planning, public health, land use, environmental protection, and Google Earth mapping. With such a diverse body of applications, the research in geospatial technologies is always evolving and new theories, methodologies, tools, and applications are being developed.

Advances in Geospatial Technologies (AGT) Book Seriess is a reference source and outlet for research that discusses all aspects of geographic information, including areas such as geomatics, geodesy, GIS, cartography, remote sensing, and other areas. Because geospatial technologies are so pervasive in such a variety of areas, AGT also includes books that address interdisciplinary applications of the technologies.

A chapter proposal having 2-3 pages length is to be submitted by the researchers and practitioners from academia and industry no later than March 30, 2015. A notification is to be sent to contributors by April 30, 2015. Given the chapter guidelines, the full chapters are expected to be submitted by July 30, 2015. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the GIS topics.

Note: There are no submission or acceptance fees for manuscripts submitted to this book publication, Handbook of Research on Geographic Information Systems Applications and Advancements. All manuscripts are accepted based on a double-blind peer review editorial process.
