The Geoinfo 2017 Demonstration session complements the overall program of the Symposium. It is designed to provide an exciting and highly interactive way to demonstrate tools for storing, processing, analyzing and visualizing spatial and spatio-temporal data. This is an excellent opportunity to advertise the applicability of the developed tool and to obtain feedback from the community in geoinformatics. Tool Demonstration papers should be related to the topics of interest of the main conference track. The session is focused on academic and research software, and it is not intended for the demonstration of commercial products.
