The Internet has become a ubiquitous platform for communicating and disseminating geographic information. There are a plethora of online resources and tools available to share information and develop a better understanding of both our natural and built landscapes. These include: information repositories, website and portals containing both static and dynamic information. With the recent advent of web 2.0 there has been a rapid expansion in the number of online tools and technologies for which we can learn, share and address issues facing society such as climate change, food security and human well-being. Such tools including: photo sharing, map mash-ups, geo-tagging tools, virtual globes and collaborative virtual worlds are providing new ways for society to explore and understand past present and future landscapes.
This special issue is an initiative of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) WG II/ 6 for Geographical Visualization and Virtual Reality. In this special issue we encourage the submission of papers which broadly cover the theme of landscape and the internet. Papers which address new research developments in online geographies and tools for communicating and understanding landscape function, form and processes; whether they are urban or natural will be considered.
Particular areas of interest include:
• Recent advances in online geographical / landscape visualization
• Novel Landscape information repositories, websites, and portals
• Collaborative web 2.0 approaches for communicating landscapes
• Research, development and applications of virtual globe technologies
• Development s in 3D spatial data infrastructure and object libraries
• Innovative applications in immersive and semi-immersive virtual reality
• Evaluating the usefulness and usability of online geographical visualization tools
• The geographies of virtual worlds and online communities
• Advances of mobile computing devices in understanding landscapes
• Online spatial decision support systems for landscape planning
