With the rise of the internet, Big Data has increasingly grown in scope, encompassing wide swaths of human behavior, as well as variations in Earth, environmental processes, and the intersection between the two. Researchers in this realm may be interested in Big Earth Data, an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that "publishes research topics on 'big data' studies across the entire spectrum of Earth sciences." Here, visitors will find original research articles, as well as data papers with descriptions of datasets. Recent article topics include using the TimeScan concept to process large satellite-generated datasets, a review of technologies and emerging issues in big data applications to hydrology, and using Random Forest to map landslide susceptibility. Currently in its second volume, Big Earth Data is published by Taylor & Francis for the International Society for Digital Earth, a nonprofit organization that promotes "academic exchange, science and technology innovation, education, and international collaboration towards Digital Earth."
