Hello,

I just stumbled across this, below, on the PPGIS website: the Forum on  
Participatory Geographic Information Systems and Technologies.

Call for Papers:
THE GEOSPATIAL WEB - How Geo-Browsers, Social Software and the Web 2.0 
are Shaping the Network Society
http://geoweb.know-center.at/

You are cordially invited to submit chapters for an upcoming book on the 
Geospatial Web, published by Springer in the Advanced Information and 
Knowledge Processing Series. The book will present the technical 
foundations of the Geospatial Web, investigate information services and 
collaborative environments built on top of geo-browsers like Google 
Earth and NASA World Wind, and explore the economic, social and 
environmental impacts of such knowledge-intensive applications. 
Geo-browsers are an ideal platform to integrate (i) cartographic data 
such as topographic maps and street directories, (ii) geo-tagged 
knowledge repositories aggregated from public online sources or 
intra-organizational systems, and (iii) environmental indicators such as 
emission levels and air quality, ozone concentrations, and biodiversity 
density.

At least three interrelated forces drive the global demand for 
environmental information: the urgency and scope of environmental 
problems, the increasingly active character of civil society, and 
advances in information and communication technology. Disseminating 
environmental information via the Geospatial Web can enhance public 
knowledge and build awareness about the interdependency of economic, 
social and environmental issues. We therefore specifically invite 
submissions in an environmental context. Possible topics for submissions 
in this category include but are not limited to: Applications of 
geospatial technology to increase environmental awareness and catalyze 
environmental online communication, support of NGOs and environmental 
communities (e.g. matchmaking services, decision support, effective 
interfaces to access environmental information), environmental education 
initiatives, ecosystem monitoring, policy support, crisis and disaster 
management, and emergency respon!
se simulations.
