The interdisciplinary field of cyberGIS (aka geographic information science and systems (GIS) based on advanced cyberinfrastructure) has a major focus on data- and computation-intensive geospatial analytics. The rapidly growing needs across many application and science domains for such analytics based on disparate geospatial big data poses significant challenges for conventional GIS approaches. This paper describes CyberGIS-Jupyter, an innovative cyberGIS framework for achieving data-intensive, reproducible, and scalable geospatial analytics using the Jupyter Notebook based on ROGER - the first cyberGIS supercomputer. The framework adapts the Notebook with built-in cyberGIS capabilities to accelerate gateway application development and sharing while associated data, analytics and workflow runtime environments are encapsulated into application packages that can be elastically reproduced through cloud computing approaches. As a desirable outcome, data-intensive and scalable geospatial analytics can be efficiently developed and improved, and seamlessly reproduced among multidisciplinary users in a novel cyberGIS science gateway environment.
