This Special Issue comprises of selected papers from the 1st International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing (ECRS-1). The event was successfully held from June 22 to July 5, 2015 on sciforum.net, which is the online platform developed by MDPI for scholarly exchange and collaboration.
ECRS-1 invited papers and presentations that promote and advance the exciting and rapidly changing field of remote sensing, and which therefore contribute toward the outlining of the role of earth observation in monitoring the environment for a sustainable future. A wide variety of excellent contributions were submitted. These contributions covered the following subjects:
- New Platforms and Sensors
- Big Data Handling
- New Image Analysis Approaches
- Operational Applications and Services
These contributions were subjected to peer review and are published with the aim of rapidly and widely disseminating research results, developments, and applications. I hope that this Conference Series will grow rapidly in the near future and will establish itself as a new way of presenting the most recent and prominent advances in remote sensing.
