Sharing knowledge about the application of Geoinformatics with focus on application and on developing countries is the objective of the proceedings of AGSE 2012, co-organized by Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences, Germany, and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The objective of this international interdisciplinary forum is to 'take the benefits of geographic information technologies to a wide canvas of applicable areas, particularly in the realms of development, environment and social well-being'. AGSE 2012 therefore pledges itself to align with the aims of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. It also aims at internationalization of education and has become a venue where academicians, researchers, students, scientists and technologists from across the globe can come together in a very open environment of scientific debate and come out enriched from such encounters. The affiliations of the authors in AGSE2012 cover 21 nations from Germany, India, USA, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Austria, Philippines, Italy, Nepal, Egypt, Bolivia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Tanzania, Sudan, Kenya, Zambia, Lithuania, to Somalia and Romania and cover themes of current relevance to geoinformatics, i.e., Earth Observation Systems, Information Extraction, and Photogrammetry, Advances in GIScience and Current Developments, Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Management, Environmental Issues and Sustainable Development, Disaster and Risk Management, Geoinformatics and Health, Urban and Regional Planning, GIS in Education, and Experiences and Business Development.Über den Autor:
