*Spatial Business Intelligence, Decision Making, and Management*

in the Track on Business Intelligence and Knowledge Management,



The mini-track on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) seeks to provide a
forum for research on varied aspects of GIS for business intelligence,
decision-making, knowledge management, and management.  This area is
becoming an essential aspect for governments and is growing rapidly this
decade in business.  The minitrack encourages manuscript submission on
conceptual theory, methodology, applications, and cases in GIS.  Other
areas of interest include rapidly growing mobile location-based
applications, cloud-based GIS, spatial crowdsourcing, spatial data
management and big data, spatial workforce, and ethical issues.  The intent
is to advance knowledge from a relatively nascent level in light of the
recent geospatial revolution and encourage exchange of findings,
methodologies, and ideas between scholars and practitioners in an area ripe
for rapid growth in business and information schools. The mini-track over
the past two years has attracted increasing interest and participation.  It
is part of the SIGDSS track and is sponsored by SIGGIS.

*Call For Papers*

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial technologies are growing
rapidly in business and government.  Increasingly these applications
involve business intelligence (BI).  Although there is considerable
research on GIS technology and geographic information science, there has
been relatively little research in spatial decision making in business and
organizations. This track seeks manuscripts that address conceptual theory,
methodology, applications, and cases on these topics.  The relevance to
research is to build up greater knowledge of the geo-spatial aspects of
decision-making and management, and to develop theory and applications,
sometimes building on well-known concepts in the DSS and MIS fields.  The
mini-track will address the evolving areas of GIS, GIScience, and related
technologies such as RFID, imagery, location for mobile devices, and
sensors, cloud-based GIS, and expansive spatial information. Since this
area is rapidly growing in business, the mini-track can shed light on a new
and evolving field. The mini-track findings, results, and discussions will
also inform the managers, strategic thinkers, and policy makers in many
organizations that are building, deploying, and managing applications in
these areas. This mini-track is supported by SIG-GIS of AIS.
