About Remote Sensing


Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292) publishes regular research papers, reviews, letters and communications covering all aspects of the remote sensing process, from instrument design and signal processing to the retrieval of geophysical parameters and their application in geosciences. Concepts of novel remote sensors as well as comprehensive reviews (including comprehensive reviews on complete sensors products) may also be published in another MDPI journal Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220). Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish experimental, theoretical and computational results in as much detail as possible so that results can be easily reproduced. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. There are, in addition, three unique features of this Journal:

  • Manuscripts regarding research proposals and research ideas are welcome
  • Electronic files and software regarding the full details of the calculation and experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material
  • We also accept manuscripts communicating to a broader audience with regard to research projects financed with public funds


  • Multi-spectral and hyperspectral remote sensing
  • Active and passive microwave remote sensing
  • Lidar and laser scanning
  • Geometric reconstruction
  • Physical modeling and signatures
  • Change detection
  • Image processing and pattern recognition
  • Data fusion and data assimilation
  • Dedicated satellite missions
  • Operational processing facilities
  • Spaceborne, airborne and terrestrial platforms
  • Remote sensing applications
