Combining the functionality of mobile devices (smartphones and tablets), wireless communication (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3/4G), and positioning technologies (GPS, Assisted GPS and GLONASS) results in a new era of mobile geographic information systems (MobiGIS) that aim at providing various invaluable services, including location-based services, intelligent transportation systems, logistics management, security and safety, etc. Many MobiGIS have been developed to solve challenging real-world problems and improve our quality of life.

ACM SIGSPATIAL MobiGIS 2014 will bring together researchers and practitioners from the GIS community, the mobile computing community, and the data management community. Many current research areas, such as spatio-temporal databases, spatio-temporal data mining, mobile cloud computing, remote sensing, participatory sensing, or social networks, raise research problems that lie at the boundary between these three communities. MobiGIS's goal is to foster an opportunity for researchers from these three communities to gather and discuss ideas that will shape and influence these emerging GIS-related research areas.
