Description
Introduction: Geosensor networks are revolutionizing not just the capture but also the processing of spatial information. Whereas conventional spatial computing relies on powerful centralized databases and information systems, geosensor networks require new distributed solutions for innetwork geodata processing and knowledge discovery.
Significance:
Applications: Such distributed and mobile geospatial technologies have important application to many domains, including transportation, tracking, navigation, sustainable management of natural environments, and emergency preparedness and response.
Challenges: This project is developing new data structures and algorithms for distributed geoinformation processing in mobile, ad-hoc geosensor networks.
