· Computational Geometry

· Computer Vision Applications in GIS

· Distributed, Parallel, and GPU Algorithms for GIS

· Earth Observation

· Environmental Geomatics — GIS, RS and Other Spatial Information Technologies

· Geographic Information Retrieval

· Geographical Analysis for Urban and Regional Development

· GIS and Cloud Computing

· GIS and High Performance Computing

· Human Computer Interaction and Visualization

· Image and Video Understanding

· Location Privacy, Data Sharing and Security

· Location-Based Services

· Performance Evaluation

· Photogrammetry

· Similarity Searching

· Social Networks and Volunteer Geographic

· Spatial Analysis and Integration

· Spatial and Spatio-Temporal Information Acquisition

· Spatial Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery

· Spatial Data Quality and Uncertainty

· Spatial Data Structures and Algorithms

· Spatial Data Warehousing, OLAP, and Decision Support

· Spatial Information and Society

· Spatial Modeling and Reasoning

· Spatial Query Processing and Optimization

We are also interested in short papers, as in the form of a letter, that clearly address a specific narrow problem and in papers that survey problems and new results pertaining to a certain topic. Authors may be invited to write short papers on the same topic in more than one successive issue of JGIS.
