Envisioning a future for a spatial-health CyberGIS marketplace Conference Paper uri icon


  • In this position paper, we describe a vision for the future of a socalled "Spatial-Health CyberGIS Marketplace". We first situate this proposed new computing ecosystem within the set of currently-available enabling technologies and techniques. We next provide a detailed vision of the capabilities and features of an ecosystem that will benefit individuals, industries, and government agencies. We conclude with a set of research challenges, both technological & societal, which must be overcome in order for such a vision to be fully realized. Copyright (c) 2013 ACM.
