Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Geographical Information Systems Theory, Applications and Management (GISTAM 2018). This conference is sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) and held in cooperation with the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS), the Canadian Institute of Geomatics (CIG), the ACM Special Interest Group on Spatial Information (ACM SIGSPATIAL), the European Association of Geographers (EUROGEO), the Associazione Italiana di Geografia fisica e Geomorfologia (AIGeo), the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society (ASPRS), the Società Italiana Di Fotogrammetria e Topografia (SIFET), the EuroSDR, the Geospatial Information and Technology Association (GITA) and the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE). The conference is also Technically co-sponsored by IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (IEEE GRSS). The purpose of the International Conference on Geographical Information Systems Theory, Applications and Management is to create a meeting point of researchers and practitioners that address new challenges in geo-spatial data sensing, observation, representation, processing, visualization, sharing and managing, in all aspects concerning both information communication and technologies (ICT) as well as management information systems and knowledge-based systems. GISTAM 2018 received 58 paper submissions from 31 countries, 28% were accepted as full papers which shows the intention of preserving a high-quality forum for the next editions of this conference. The conference program includes three invited talks delivered by internationally distinguished speakers, namely: Uwe Stilla (Technische Universitaet Muenchen, Germany), Kostas E. Katsambalos, (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece) and Eugene Fiume (University of Toronto, Canada). The GISTAM program also includes a Doctoral Consortium on Geographical Information Systems Theory, Applications and Management chaired by Prof. Armanda Rodrigues. A short list of authors will be selected and invited to submit extended revised versions of their papers for a book that will be published by Springer, in the CCIS Series, with the best papers of GISTAM 2018. To recognize the best submissions and the best student contributions, several awards based on the combined marks of paper reviewing, as assessed by the Program Committee, and the quality of the presentation at the conference venue, are conferred at the closing session of the conference. We would like to express our thanks to all participants. First of all, to the authors, whose quality work is the essence of this conference. Next, we thank all the members of the program committee and the auxiliary reviewers for their diligence and expert reviewing. We must deeply thank the invited speakers for their excellent contribution in sharing their knowledge and vision. Finally, special thanks to all the members of the INSTICC team whose collaboration was fundamental for the success of this conference. We wish you all an inspiring conference and an unforgettable stay at Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. We look forward to having additional research results presented at the next edition of GISTAM, details of which are available at http://www.gistam.org/. (More)
