During the last years the availability of spatial data has rapidly developed, in particular through the diffusion of social networks, Web 2.0 platforms and availability of suitable sensor technologies. A clear indication of this trend is the participation of users to the production of so called “Volunteered Geographic Information”, shortly VGI, due to the vast use of smartphones and mobile devices. In the current information society era, these data provide a variety of applications, not only for the solution of societal challenges such as in environment, health or transport fields, but also for the development of commercial products and services.
