Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent advancements in the field of geoinformation/geospatial technologies (GIT) which includes GIS, mobile mapping, volunteered geographic information (VGI), remote sensing and spatial analysis in line with increased global awareness of the topic (see UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction), have resulted in a strong promotion of an integrated and applied perspective on GIScience in disaster risk research. Locational aspects have increasingly been considered essential in the aim of building disaster resilient communities, through coordinated international action, by promoting increased situational risk awareness as an integral component of sustainable development.

With disasters and disaster management being an “inherently spatial” problem, geographic information and related tools and technologies, applied for data interpretation and information dissemination, can provide insight and decision support in all aspects of integrated disaster risk and crisis management and offer the basis for estimating and mapping risk, for determining damage potentials and impacted areas, for evacuation planning, for resource distribution during recovery, and for risk communication to involved stakeholders. Applications and challenges that GIScience and GIT are able to tackle in that regard include the representation, analysis, and cognition of geographic information, as well as associated spatio-temporal dynamics and uncertainties. Recent improvements in information and model interoperability, as well as inter-accessibility through new data sharing, crowdsourcing, and integration initiatives, add to this agenda.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 900 CHF (Swiss Francs).
