Geospatial data analysis is an emerging area of research today. Systems need to respond to user requests in a timely manner. In this paper we have proposed a fog computing framework namely Spatio-Fog, where the fog devices contain the geospatial data of their current region and process geospatial queries using resources in the proximity. The geospatial query resolution is performed by the fog device either itself or using cloud servers or fog device of other region depending on the geographical region related to the geospatial query. We have performed both empirical study and experimental analysis to demonstrate feasibility of our proposed approach. The empirical study illustrates that the p..
