Dear Colleagues,
I would like to inform you that the Special Issue "*Geovisualization:
Current Trends, Challenges, and Application*s" in MDPI Geographies (ISSN
2673-7086) is now open to receive submission.

*Special Issue Guest Editors:*

   - Dr. Vassilios Krassanakis (Department of Surveying and Geoinformatics
   Engineering, School of Engineering, University of West Attica).
   - Dr. Andriani Skopeliti (Cartography Laboratory, School of Rural,
   Surveying and Geoinformatics Engineering (SRSE), National Technical
   University of Athens).
   - Dr. Merve Keskin (Department of Geoinformatics and Cartography,
   Finnish Geospatial Research Institute (FGI), National Land Survey of
   - Dr. PaweĊ‚ Cybulski (Department of Cartography and Geomatics, Faculty
   of Geographical and Geological Sciences, Adam Mickiewicz University).

*Special Issue Information:*
The process of geovisualization involves scientific techniques which are
implemented in order to represent spatiotemporal information that describes
geographic entities and phenomena. The application of geovisualization
methods allows the visual exploration of geospatial data using static,
animated, and interactive cartographic products. The majority of spatial
analysis and geographic information system applications resulted in
specific representations which could substantially support the
identification of potential relationships, patterns and trends related to
the spatial and temporal distribution of geographic data. Hence, the
geovisualization process has become an essential part of different crucial
research/scientific and professional domains. Undoubtedly, the immense
availability of both open source and proprietary software tools, the
considerable number of available sensors and devices, as well as the freely
distributed geospatial data have contributed toward this direction.
However, the popularity that geovisualization methods have gained implies
several challenges and new solutions, especially considering the advent of
the Big Data era.

This Special Issue aims to collect innovative and high-quality research
articles related to current trends and challenges in the field of
geovisualization in 2D and 3D. Additionally, possible contributions could
describe specific applications in several related domains. Comprehensive
and systematic literature review articles in the field are also welcome.

More specifically, potential topics include (but are not limited to) the

   - New geovisualization design methods;
   - Geovisualization variables and principles;
   - Evaluation and/or comparison of different geovisualization methods;
   - New geovisualization software tools;
   - Theoretical and experimental studies in geovisualization;
   - Geovisualization and Big Data;
   - Geovisualization and VR/AR applications;
   - Geovisualization in local, mobile, and web environments;
   - Printed and digital map collections;
   - Geovisualization applications in different fields (e.g., spatial
   analysis and planning, environment, climate change, hydrology, geology,
   history, education, archaeology, epidemiology, biology);

Comprehensive and systematic literature reviews on any of the
aforementioned topics.

*Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2022.*
