Manuscripts should be written in English or Bahasa Indonesia and submitted solely to Journal of Applied Geospatial Information (JAGI). All figures should be in tiff or jpeg format with high resolution (300 or 600 dpi). References listed in the text should follow the Springer basic (Author-date) style. Submit your paper in Word to JAGI secretariat via email: jagi.polibatam@gmail.com  and jagi@polibatam.com.

If the method is categorized as new procedures or refers to published paper which was not readily available for most readers, details methodology should be provided.


Results and discussion should not be separated. State the obtained results based on the used methods.

Discussion can be done by comparing results/data reported with other research results previously published. Unit of measurements has to write by following the international systems.


Conclusion should be stated clearly. It should be written as paragraph, not as a list based on the discussion.

In this section, author(s) should mention the grant source (Institution as well as year of the contract) and the person to whom the grant was given. Acknowledgement should also be given to those (individual/company/institution) who has contributed to the study especially in  establishing research design, acquisition of data, supplying documents/photographs or analysis and interpretation of data, or who was involved in drafting the manuscript or revising it critically for important intellectual content. If the contribution of an individual quite significant, then he/she should be put as one of the author. Please refer to author(s) contribution form.

The author-year notation system is required and completed. All reference that mentioned should be written down in reference and arranged alphabetically from oldest to newest and from A to Z. Articles must be at least 10 recent references or over and 60% is journal. The most of references are primary ones. Only the first author’s name and initials are inverted.  Journal names are italicized. We used APA citation style for reference.

In the text it should be referred by the name(s) of the first author followed by the year of publication in parentheses, using the following format: (Hartati and Widianingsih, 2011) or Suryono and Riniatsih (2011). When there are more than two authors, use the first author’s name followed by et al. (written in italics). When several references are put in the same parentheses, it should be typed from the oldest year (Rochaddi and Zainuri, 2005; Pringgenies and Yusuf, 2008; Munasik and Trianto, 2010; Suwartimah et al., 2011).
