Geospatial technologies have become integral to smart city development, offering unprecedented opportunities for efficient decision-making, planning, and governance. This workshop aims to explore and advance the state-of-the-art in geospatial technologies, focusing on open standards, methods, algorithms, and systems related to the sensor web, Internet of Things (IoT), crowdsourcing, and intelligent systems. Beyond technological aspects, the workshop will delve into social and organizational issues, emphasizing the real-time utilization of data, citizen trust, and the broader implications for smart city governance and digital twin(s) development.
