新書出版:Crowdsourcing Geographic Knowledge:VGI in Theory and Practice

2012年6月25日 尚無評論

書名:Crowdsourcing Geographic Knowledge: Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) in Theory and Practice
作者:Daniel Sui, Sarah Elwood, Michael Goodchild
出版社:Springer; 2012 edition

The phenomenon of volunteered geographic information is part of a profound transformation in how geographic data, information, and knowledge are produced and circulated. By situating volunteered geographic information (VGI) in the context of big-data deluge and the data-intensive inquiry, the 20 chapters in this book explore both the theories and applications of crowdsourcing for geographic knowledge production with three sections focusing on 1).  VGI, Public Participation, and Citizen Science; 2). Geographic Knowledge Production and Place Inference; and 3). Emerging Applications and New Challenges.  This book argues that future progress in VGI research depends in large part on building strong linkages with diverse geographic scholarship. Contributors of this volume situate VGI research in geography’s core concerns with space and place, and offer several ways of addressing persistent challenges of quality assurance in VGI. This book positions VGI as part of a shift toward hybrid epistemologies, and potentially a fourth paradigm of data-intensive inquiry across the sciences. It also considers the implications of VGI and the exaflood for further time-space compression and new forms, degrees of digital inequality, the renewed importance of geography, and the role of crowdsourcing for geographic knowledge production.

ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop 2012

2012年6月11日 尚無評論

近年來網路已成為數據發佈或訊息交流的主要媒介,越來越多的免費資料被發佈在網路上供大家使用,用戶生產資訊(User-Generated Content, UGC)以驚人的速度累積,並持續增加。在地理資訊上稱這些用戶生產的資料為自願地理訊息(Volunteered Geographic Information, VGI),研究人員注意到這些情況的重要性,已經開始進行相關的研究,並引發了許多新的研究課題。

ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop 2012 將針對 “Geographic Information Retrieval”、”Crowdsourcing”、 “Geospatial (Semantic) Web”、 “Linked Geospatial Data”、”GeoWeb 2.0” 等議題為主,期望相關領域的研究人員能齊聚一堂,共同討論這些研究課題及發展。

Livehoods計畫: 利用社群媒體力量定義鄰里區域範圍

2012年4月30日 尚無評論

每個人對鄰里區域(neighborhood)範圍的認知不同,所以要定義一個鄰里區域的邊界不是一件容易的事情。卡耐基梅隆大學(Carnegie Mellon)針對此提出了Livehoods計畫,收集並分析使用者在Twitter及Foursquare打卡的資訊,目的是希望利用社群媒體(Social Media)的力量,來定義出居民認知的鄰里區域範圍,由於資料不斷更新,所以區域的範圍也不會是固定而是動態的。

Crowd sourcing in National Mapping – Call for Applications for Internship Funding

2012年4月19日 尚無評論

AGILE and EuroSDR are together funding pilot project research into the use of crowd sourcing in a national mapping context. ESRI Europe have also kindly agreed to offer funding of pilot projects. The projects are to be carried out through short university student internships in the summers of 2012 and 2013 with funding of 1800 per internship (unless further funded by project partners). The intention is that the projects will pair a national mapping or cadastre agency (NMCA) with an academic partner(s).

The application form link is here.

The closing date for receipt of applications is Monday 23rd April 2012.

Questions and enquiries can be directed to, by email, to Jeremy Morley (Nottingham Geospatial Institute, University of Nottingham) and Peter Mooney (National University of Ireland, Maynooth).

專文:NGIS 的下一步:公眾參與

2011年12月29日 尚無評論

NGIS 的下一步:公眾參與」,作者:蔡博文教授,發表於國土資訊系統通訊第八十期2~9頁。

國土資訊系統推動20餘年,在九大資料庫架構的推動下,資料庫建置的成果斐然,後續仍需努力的是資料庫更新維護課題。資料庫更新除了與業務結合等策略外,公眾參與是另外一個值得思考的方向,「志願性地理資訊」( volunteer geographic information, VGI)是近年 GIS領域發展的新課題,該文章將介紹 VGI及國內外的案例及其運用方向。

2012 Workshop on Crowdsourcing

2011年12月9日 尚無評論

Workshop on Crowdsourcing – 19-20 January 2012

The workshop hosted by AGILE and EuroSDR invite researchers, national mapping & cadastre agencies and GIS professionals to participate in a 1½ day workshop to discuss the role of crowd-sourcing in the context of national  mapping. This practically focused workshop will start with scene-setting  presentations on the rise of crowdsourced geographic information before inviting  participants to group together to discuss the challenges of using crowd-sourced  data in a national mapping context, and to develop short project plans.

2011年2月美國Esri公司與幾個大學合作,舉辦「Volunteered Geographic Information: Real-Time and Emergency Applications」,會中邀請學者與專家共同討論自願參與地理資訊(Volunteered Geographic Information, VGI)的意涵與應用,同時也將VGI定位成地理資訊的群眾外包(locatilocational crowdsourcingonal crowdsourcing)。

2007年12月 Los Alamos National LaboratoryNCGIA at University of California, Santa Barbara合作,舉辦「Workshop on Volunteered Geographic Information」,針對以下擠個議題進行討論:

  • What motivates citizens to provide such information in the public domain, and what factors govern/predict its validity?
  • What methods might be used to validate such information, and to attach appropriate metadata to it?
  • Can VGI be framed within the larger domain of sensor networks, in which inert and static sensors are replaced by, or combined with, intelligent and mobile humans?
  • What limitations are imposed on VGI by differential access to broadband Internet, mobile phones, and other communication technologies, and by concerns over privacy?
