About Journal

  • Journal of Geo-information Science is directed by Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is sponsored by two institutes, one is Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences, the others is The Geographical Society of China. It is co-sponsored by three institues: State Key Laboratory of Resources and Environmental Information System (Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences), Key Laboratory of Virtual Geographic Environment (Nanjing Normal University), and Key Laboratory of 3D Information Acquisition and Application (Capital Normal University). The journal was established in 1996 by academician CHEN Shupeng, which was formerly named “Geo-Information” and renamed “Journal of Geo-Information Science” in 2009. It has been in publication since 2002 and published monthly since 2015. The current editor-in-chief is academician XU Guanhua.

    Journal of Geo-information Science publishes primarily research articles, commentaries, and letters on earth system information, which covers topics on geo-information mechanism, geo-information cognition and methodology, and graphic representation of spatiotemporal changes. We pay attention to innovative and timely research on advances in geo-information science and related interdisciplines. The journal has featured columns for geo-information science theory and methodology, geospatial analysis applications, remote sensing technology and applications, etc. Several special issues are also established based on major national programs and national development strategy.

    Our broad readers are researchers, technicians, and decision makers who work on geo-information science theory, geographic information system, remote sensing, and geomatics.

    As an academic journal in geomatics, Journal of Geo-information Science is included  in EI Compendex ,GEOBASE and Scopus. And the title is a member of Chinese Science Citation Database (CSCD), Chinese Science and Technology Paper and Citation Database (CSTPCD), Core Journals of China. According to CSTPCD 2019, the impact factor of this journal ranks top 3 among geomatics journals with a comprehensive impact ranking 4th.

    Our mission is to provide an open and high-quality platform to share information with the principles of impartiality, fairness, and objectiveness. We will continue to make efforts to track the scientific frontiers in geo-science, highlight our unique journal features, and involve related interdisciplinary applications to improve our national and international impact.
