The complexity, diversity, and rapid growth of geospatial data have increased significantly over recent decades and are driving discoveries in a large number of application and science domains. Access to and interaction with geospatial big data collected from numerous sources are increasingly fundamental to explore natural, human and social systems at unprecedented scales and provide tremendous opportunities to gain dynamic insight into complex phenomena through big compute (e.g. cloud and high-performance computing) and cyberGIS approaches. CyberGIS – geographic information science and systems (GIS) based on advanced computing and cyberinfrastructure – represents new-generation GIS in the era of big data, and has emerged during the past several years as a vibrant interdisciplinary field. Though geospatial big data have played important roles in many domains and promise to enable a wide range of decision-making practices with significant societal impacts, spatial data science remains to be established for advancing leading-edge research and education in the era of big data and cyberGIS. As part of the AAG 2018 Symposium on CyberGIS and Spatial Data Science, this session aims to bring together researchers from pertinent multidisciplinary communities to explore the foundations and frontiers of cyberGIS and spatial data science.
