Advances and Emergence in Participatory Sensing on Mobile Social Media Analytics

It has become ever emerging when the analytics of mobile Participatory Sensing face the big data era. Several challenges have been raised, for instance, how to design a suitable cloud/distributed architecture, how to carry out online computing efficiently, and how to handle the scalability issue. When being applied to big data applications, lots of the existing tools and systems for mobile Participatory Sensing analytics would become questionable. On the other hand, the big data itself has provided unique opportunity to accomplish the above tasks. This special issue will investigate all these aspects of participatory sensing.
