First ISPRS Proceedings accepted for Web of Science

by Christian Heipke
ISPRS Secretary General

After what can only be described as a very long and arduous process, the first ISPRS Proceedings have now been approved for inclusion into the Thomson Reuters' Conference Citation Proceedings Index (CPCI), one of the indices of the Web of Science.

ISPRS initiated the evaluation procedure for The International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences with the help of its publisher, Copernicus GmbH, in January 2013. According to the rules of CPCI, all proceedings from the preceding four years, in this case those for the years 2010-13, were subject to the evaluation procedure. In the future, the proceedings from each event are then individually evaluated by Thomson Reuters prior to acceptance in the CPCI.

Thomson Reuters has now informed ISPRS that the first three sets of proceedings, those from the 2010 Mid-term Symposia of Commission VI and VIII, as well as the proceedings of the meeting on Core Databases held in Haifa in March 2010, have been accepted for inclusion into the CPCI. This is a tremendous success for the entire ISPRS community and affirms our belief that the Archives indeed contain the state-of-the-art in research into information from imagery. Council anticipates that those proceedings still currently under evaluation will be approved in the near future. If so, all proceedings published in or post-2010 will become part of the Web of Science.

At the same time, we – the ISPRS community – should take this positive decision as encouragement to continue the excellent work undertaken in the past. This is the best way to ensure that all future proceedings of the Archives will find their way into the CPCI. Council will submit each set for evaluation immediately after publication, and will inform the community of the result as soon as a new set has been evaluated. Council is also preparing an application for ISPRS’s other proceedings series, the ISPRS Annals of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences, which contains full-peer reviewed papers and was initiated in 2012. In this way, all proceedings of the Annals will be subject to evaluation and will hopefully also be included into the CPCI at some juncture in the future. Council is very optimistic that a positive answer from Thompson Reuters will be somewhat faster this time around!

Czech Traces in the world development

Research results bring progress to human society. Our present state is a continuation of the constructing ideas of our predecessors. Inventions in Czech Lands have also added to the process. I already mentioned one of them – the sugar cube in one of my previous editorials. It was help of a husband to his wife to make her work with sugar easier at home.

The area of the Czech Republic has not reached the sea coasts since the 14 century. The country is situated in the center of Europe and the only place for ships are rivers with a relatively small size as most of them have their springs here. In spite of this fact, it was Josef Ressel in 1827 who invented the screw propeller.

This year was fruitful. The Veverka brothers invented the plough which was a break in the tilling work.

The Kaplan turbine, a propeller-type water turbine with adjustable blades, is also of Czech origin. The research took place in Brno in 1910-1912.

The history of inventions shows that there were more people who invented the same thing in different countries in the same time knowing nothing about each other. The lightning rod is such an example. It happened in 1754 when Prokop Diviš, a Moravian priest, built the first one, while 6 years later Benjamin Franklin built another one.

International Conference on Location-based Social Media      

International Conference on Location-based Social Media – Call for Abstracts
Athens, Georgia, USA
March 5-7, 2015

In the era of big data, increasingly sizeable datasets come from social media, particularly location-based social media, in the form that is widely known as user-generated contents. Many social media datasets are made available at the finest spatial and temporal scales. The availability of such data creates unprecedented opportunities for researchers to uncover what were previously hidden in the era of small data. What kind of new research questions may be addressed with the available social media data? What are the social, ethical, and political implications of the wide use of social media platforms and the availability of such data? Particularly, what can geographers, GIScientists, and social scientists in general, contribute in response to the unique research opportunities and challenges with social media data?

This conference is designed to bring together researchers from various fields and perspectives to share ideas and findings of their research related to social media data. The aim is to provide a forum for participants to reflect upon what has been accomplished and to discuss what can be pursued in the future. We look forward to your participation!
