Location analytics and GIS have become deeply integrated into society,
transforming every aspect of human life. These technologies move the
Internet beyond cyberspace to the location-aware Internet of Things (IoT),
so-called Location of Things (LoT). They enable connections among objects
whether they are fixed (such as appliances at homes and warehouses) or
moving (such as cars, pedestrians, and trucks), helping cooperation of
these objects and the analysis of their mobility patterns in space and
time. This workshop focuses on location analytics and spatially-aware IoT,
which bridges people, data and things, thereby making a collaborative
economy more efficient and effective. While locational technologies can
create value, the very success of these technologies also raises issues
related to the use of spatial data, such as privacy and trust. This
workshop, including the keynote talk by an industry leader, highlights the
emerging opportunities and issues in location analytics and discusses how
these technologies can enable the growth and success of businesses in the
collaborative economy. In the afternoon part of the workshop, contributed
papers will be presented on a variety of topics related to emerging
opportunities and issues with regard to location analytics and GIS at large.

Sponsored by AIS’s Special Interest Group in Geographic Information Systems
(SIGGIS).
