Location Intelligence is an area of rapid growth in various sectors and industries. Globally, the location intelligence market is valued at USD 14 billion in 2021, as part of a larger geospatial industry that has grown to be a worldwide market of USD 430 billion (Markets and Markets, 2021). This growth has been catalyzed by advances in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology and its innovative deployment by organizations to produce location analytics and intelligence across a broad array of industries.
The Location Intelligence track is now in its forth year at HICSS. This year, it featured two minitracks. They are:
Geospatial Big Data Analytics
Location Intelligence Research in System Sciences
While the goal of the Geospatial Big Data Analytics minitrack is to uncover the potential of geospatial big data in offering solutions to address challenges in the corporate, governmental, and societal landscapes, the intent of the Location Intelligence Research in System Sciences minitrack is to foster research and collaboration in the expansive, multidisciplinary area of locational intelligence.
We wish to thank all the people whose initiative and drive has sustained the growth of this Track. We appreciate the efforts of the minitrack chairs who have worked hard to welcome a variety of high-quality submissions and shepherd the review process with a group of committed reviewers. We welcome, and strongly solicit, your participation in this track at future HICSS conferences. Please contact us with your ideas for new minitracks or papers.
