2010 International Workshop on WebGIS and Location Based Web Service (WGLBWS'10)

December 8-10, 2010, Shanghai, China


In conjunction with The 9th International Conference on Web-based Learning (ICWL 2010)

With the development of Internet and mobile communication, WebGIS and Location Based Service(LBS) have become a vibrant and rapidly evolving application area. Location-based services are often used via Web browsers and are in this case considered as a particular type of Web services. WebGIS can also be constructed via Web services. These represent a novel challenge for WebGIS and LBS. This workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners and developers from different background areas such as service computing, cloud computing and GIS area to exchange the latest experience, research ideas and synergic research and development on fundamental issues and applications about WebGIS and LBS in service and cloud computing environments. The workshop solicits high quality research results in all related areas.

The objective of the workshop is to invite authors to submit original manuscripts that demonstrate and explore current advances in all aspects of WebGIS and LBS in service and cloud computing environments. The workshop solicits novel papers on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:
- Service based WebGIS and applications
- Information Management in WebGIS
- Application of Web 2.0 in WebGIS
- Value-Added Services in WebGIS
- Algorithm based service computing
- Model based service computing
- Application based service computing
- Principles and Methodologies of LBS
- Data Management in LBS
- Commercial Model of LBS
- LBS Platforms and Tools
- Web Service Based LBS and Its Applications
- LBS and Social Network
- LBS within 3G Wireless Communication Network
- Novel Applications of LBS
