Spatial cyberinfrastructure represents a specific type of cyberinfrastructure that synergistically integrates the capabilities of cyberinfrastructure, geographic information systems (GIS), and spatial analysis for geospatial problem solving and decision making. Spatial cyberinfrastructure seeks to resolve longstanding complex problems of handling and analyzing massive and heterogeneous spatial datasets through using distributed and high-performance computing, sensor networks, and other advanced information technology capabilities to transform massive spatial datasets into insights and knowledge.

As part of the AAG 2018 Symposium on CyberGIS and Spatial Data Science, this session aims to capture the latest efforts on the development of spatial cyberinfrastructure including but not limited to the coupling of cyberinfrastructure with spatial thinking and geographic approaches, applications of spatial cyberinfrastructure in different domains such as emergency response, precision agriculture, human dynamics, and public health, and potential future directions of spatial cyberinfrastructure.
