Spatial Computing covers ideas, solutions, tools, technologies, and systems that transform our lives and society by creating a new understanding of spaces, locations, places, and properties. Since the term Big Data was coined for the first time in 2005, it has unleashed a worldwide revolution in scientific research and business. Big Spatial Data (BSD), the Big Data associated with spatial information, is now one of the most active research fields in spatial computing, mainly motivated by the rapid development of smart, sensor, and mobile technologies. Current usage of the term Big Spatial Data tends to refer to the process of capturing, storing, managing, analyzing, and visualizing huge amounts of spatial data, not using traditional tools and systems. Recent big spatial data developments have motivated the emergence of novel technologies for distributed processing of large-scale spatial data in shared-nothing clusters of computers, leading to Distributed Spatial Data Management Systems...
