About this book

The Association of Geographic Information Laboratories for Europe (AGILE) conferences provide a multidisciplinary forum for an increasingly varied landscape of scientific knowledge production and dissemination, to th GI Scientists from around the world. This year’s landmark 10 AGILE Conference, held at the top of Europe in Aalborg, Denmark, brought a number of significant changes to the well-established conference series. For the first time the call for papers included a full-paper submission track of original, unpublished, fundamental scientific research, the results of which you will find published in this volume. The response for this call provides ample evidence that GI Science and Systems are alive and well in Europe. Twenty-eight papers (out of 62 submissions) were accepted for this volume (acceptance rate: 45%). Judging by the author’s affiliations in this volume, the diverse AGILE Community includes (but is not limited to) computer scientists, geographers, geomatic engineers, GI Science pr- titioners, just to mention a few. The breadth of submissions reflects a vibrant and globally interc- nected GI Science community. You will find contributions from all four corners of Europe, as well as from China, Japan, and the United States.
