Presentations from the BigSkyEarth Conference: AstroGeoInformatics

BigSkyEarth organized its final conference AstroGeoInformatics – Knowledge Discovery in Big Data from Astronomy and Earth Observation in Tenerife, Spain, on December 17-19, 2018. The conference was hosted by Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias and Universidad de La Laguna. The BigSkyEarth book of the same topic was presented at the conference and will bi published in 2019. Conference proceedings are published as a community on (LINK).
