Towards Geo-Data Science: extracting knowledge from heterogeneous geoenvironmental data

The adoption of data science in environmental and earth sciences, physical geography, humanities, and social sciences, has begun to emerge as self-contained discipline only recently, demonstrating exceptional efficiency in addressing the complexity of the investigated phenomena. This trend encourages contemporary scientists to collaborate with disciplines that may initially appear distant from their own expertise. Such an interdisciplinary openness is of growing significance as society struggles to respond to the implication of anthropogenic pressures on different issues, including natural hazards and climate change, or the harmful impacts of human activities on biodiversity, water and air quality, and human health. Therefore, there is a real need for the development of novel techniques that facilitate the extraction of insights from data and the subsequent transformation of this information into actionable knowledge
