9th International Symposium on Spatial Data Quality (ISSDQ 2015) Montpellier - La Grande Motte, France
29th - 30th September 2015
Specific call for papers for the session:
"Crowdsourcing for data integration: quality assurance, data fusion and conflation issues"
The value of crowdsourcing including citizen science data has been recognised as providing timely and complementary data in many different situations but this value is diminished as the data is often considered of low quality and potentially biased compared to authoritative. Quality assurance of crowdsourced data is therefore looked for either at the data collection stage or as a post-process. This quality assurance needs also to consider future use of this data (usability criterion) and particularly its combination under conflation or fusion schemes with authoritative data within spatial data infrastructures.
Contributions related to quality assurance considered in tandem with conflation or fusion within the remits of the ISSDQ for any crowdsourcing setting from citizen science to web crawling will be welcome to this session. Particular discussions around the following topics will be looked for:
-fusion and conflation algorithms in environmental policy making -quality standards and other metrics for fusion algorithms
-decision making improvement from data conflation/fusion of authoritative data and crowdsourced data
-metaquality aspects in data conflation/fusion and impact in decision making -impact of the multivariate role of the quality elements
Submissions should fit to the ISPRS Meeting Template - http://www.isprs.org/documents/orangebook/app5.aspx - and should range between 4 and 6 pages. You will be asked to mention the session where you wish to present your paper where you will mention “Crowdsourcing for data integration: quality assurance, data fusion and conflation issues”. This follows the general call for papers http://www.isprs- geospatialweek2015.org/files/ISSDQ2015_CallForPaperAndSession.pdf where more information on the conference can be found.
Note that the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2015 is from the 28th of September to the 3rd of October with the opportunity to register to multiple events/conferences.
