The explosion of computing driven geospatial based applications in the past few years has revolutionized the way we live and work. Computing technologies, such as sensor computing, cloud computing, mobile computing, visual computing, business intelligence, spatial database server, and high-performance computing, play key roles in geospatial technologies and applications.

COM.Geo focuses on the latest computing technologies for multidisciplinary research and development that enables the exploration in geospatial areas. Innovative geospatial research and application technologies are the brightest spotlights at COM.Geo conference. COM.Geo is playing a guiding role to advancing the technologies in computing for geospatial fields.

COM.Geo conference is an exclusive event that builds a bridge between computing and geospatial areas. It connects researchers, developers, scientists, and application users from academia, government, and industry in all related fields. COM.Geo 2013 is the 3nd International Conference on Computing for Geospatial Research and Application on July 22-24, 2013 in the capital of Silicon Valley, San Jose, CA.
