We had a successful conference! Thanks to all who participated, and we hope to see you at the 12th Symposium!

You may download a full copy of the conference proceedings (18 MB pdf).

Welcome! Spatial Accuracy 2014 is the latest in an academic conference series held every two years since 1994 under the auspices of the International Spatial Accuracy Research Association (ISARA). The symposium attracts participants from all over the world, in a diverse range of academic and professional fields, including geography, statistics, and the environmental sciences. More information about the history of this series, including papers presented at previous symposia, is available at the main Spatial Accuracy website.

This is an era boasting unmatched availability of spatial data, ever-expanding computational capacity, and rapid development of complex environmental systems models. On the other hand, the challenges facing environmental science and natural resource management have never been more pressing. Spatial Accuracy 2014 aims to address a broad set of multidisciplinary issues related to a fundamental challenge: the mismatches between geographic reality and the data and models used to characterize that reality.

Communications on cutting edge basic research, as well as their creative and novel applications within this problem domain, are welcomed. Accepted abstracts, revised as short papers, will be published in conference proceedings, and presented in oral or poster sessions at the symposium. In addition, the conference also includes workshops on new methods and applications. Post-conference publication options include a special issue.
