Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Geographical Information Systems Theory, Applications and Management (GISTAM 2019). This conference is sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC), co-organized by the University of Crete 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) and the EuroSDR. 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 2019 received 70 paper submissions from 26 countries, 34% 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 keynote speeches delivered by internationally distinguished speakers, namely: Ilias Tziavos (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece), Sara Fabrikant (University of Zurich - Irchel, Switzerland) and Norbert Pfeifer (Technical University of Wien, Austria). The GISTAM program also includes the Special Session on GIS in Healthcare (HGIS) and the Special Session on Observations and Numerical Modeling of the Coastal Ocean Zone Dynamics (ONM-CozD). 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 Heraklion, Crete, Greece. 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)
