The ICA Commission on Geospatial Analysis and Modeling and the ICA Commission on Location-Based Services invite you to a pre-ICC2017 symposium on location-based social media and tracking data. The growing availability and use of location-based social media data and tracking data (e.g., GPS tracking) have created unprecedented opportunities for researchers from various disciplines. At the same time, it also challenges people with new theoretical, technical, ethical, and social questions. This symposium attempts to bring together researchers from various fields and perspectives to share ideas and findings of their research related to location-based social media data or location tracking and sensing data.
