1st International Conference on Geoinformatics and Data Analysis (ICGDA2018) was held in Prague, Czech Republic during April 20-22, 2018. We take pleasure in welcoming all participants of ICGDA. The objective of our conferences will always be bringing together a large group of researchers, scientists, academics, and engineers in the area of geoinformatics and data analysis, software and services engineering from all over the world to share ideas not only the technical interests, but culture and history. We truly believe the participants will find the discussion fruitful, and will enjoy the opportunity for setting up future collaborations. It is our sincere hope that ICGDA will one day become the leading conference in this specific academic area.
