Geospatial Data Analysis: A Review of Theory and Methods


In this study, we have presented taxonomy for the geospatial data and GIS systems. Based on this taxonomy, the
available literature are studied and categorized. The geo-spatial data is one of the major contributor towards the big data paradigm and hence research for newer techniques for storage of data and newer systems plays an important role in the scientific community.


This research received funding from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) in the framework of the Indo Dutch Science Industry Collaboration programme [NWO, Den Haag, PO Box 93138,NL-2509 AC The Hague, The Netherlands]. We are thankful to NWO, Royal Shell and Prof. Sebastian Meijer, the Principal Investigator of this project.
