Overview

Top Research Topics at Geographic Information Science?

  • Geographic information system (12.51%)
  • Data mining (11.96%)
  • Artificial intelligence (11.85%)

The primary areas of discussion in Geographic Information Science are Geographic information system, Data mining, Artificial intelligence, Data science and Geospatial analysis. Data mining study tackled is connected to the field of Spatial analysis. The conference explores topics in Artificial intelligence which can be helpful for research in disciplines like Machine learning, Computer vision and Pattern recognition.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • Geographic Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (626 citations)
  • Enriching Wayfinding Instructions with Local Landmarks (392 citations)
  • Project lachesis: Parsing and modeling location histories (223 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Geographic Information Science:

The conference articles generally zeroe in on subjects such as Geographic information system, Data mining, Information retrieval, Artificial intelligence and Geospatial analysis. The studies on Geographic information system discussed at the most cited publications can also contribute to research in the domains of Ontology (information science), Spatial analysis, Ontology, Data science and Operations research. While work presented in the most cited publications provide substantial information on Artificial intelligence, it also covers topics in Machine learning, Street network, Computer vision and Subject (documents).

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2016 edition, 15.38% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 34.09% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 18.18% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 15.91% of all publications and 31.82% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
