The explosion of computing driven location based applications in the past few years has revolutionized the way we live and work. Computing technologies, such as cloud computing, business intelligence, spatial database server, and high-performance computing, play key roles in geospatial technologies and applications. More importantly, since everything in the computer network has its own location, all of them are related to geospatial technologies and applications. Like the hottest term “.com” in the late of 90’s, “.geo” would be another hottest term and field in the coming decades.
