Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,
The laser scanning market including hardware, software and services is growing roughly at the annual rate of 15 percent. Terms Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS), Mobile Laser Scanning (MLS) and Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) are applied in laser scanning (LS) depending whether the platform is an aircraft, moving vehicle or tripod, respectively. The segment of MLS is perhaps the highest growing area within LS. MLS and mobile mapping is also used by large worldwide information technology companies providing street views. The number of ISI Web of Science listed high-quality papers in this emerging area is still quite modest. This special issue proposes to promote innovative scientific contributions, which may include novel data processing approaches, new applications, benchmarking studies, new hardware solutions and multidisciplinary approaches from this important technology area.
Prospective authors are invited to contribute to this Special Issue of Remote Sensing by submitting an original manuscript of their latest research results in the field of advances in mobile laser scanning and mobile mapping. Also reviews contributions are welcomed. Contributions may be from, but not limited to:

  • Innovative multidisciplinary concepts and applications
  • Techniques for the fusion of MLS with other sensors (including ALS)
  • New methods in information extraction, i.e. automated feature extraction and object recognition, from all kinds of laser or ranging data to all applications
  • forest
  • Mobile terrestrial laser scanning hardware and platform (including UAV/UAS) developments
  • Accuracy and performance evaluations of the systems
  • Use of MLS in indoor 3D mapping
  • Creation of photorealistic models with MLS/mobile mapping
  • Affordable mobile mapping systems and applications
  • Improvement of georeferencing solutions in GNSS shadows

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. Remote Sensing 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 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs).
