A declared purpose of digital governance is to empower public with information access to enable transparency, accuracy, and efficiency for societal good at large. Spotting what is hot and prioritizing become natural undertakings as a result of the spacetime information access. Naturally, hotspot geoinformatics for natural resources monitoring, etiology, early warning, and management has become a critical need for the 21st century. The chapter introduces and exposits geoinformatics of geospatial and spatiotemporal hotspot detection and prioritization for this age of ecological, environmental, and socio-economic indicators and geospatial information technology. The discussion provides examples and illustrations of regional issues involving water resources at watershed levels, bioreserves and corridors for biodiversity and endangered species, poverty patches and their temporal trajectories, etc. The presentation concludes with an important case study of geoinformatic digital governance of innovative river connectivity in Jalagon District and the related societal impacts, inclusive of scientific issues and potential solutions.
