With the advances in sensor technology and the increasing quantity of multi-sensor, multi-temporal, and multi-resolution data from different sources, data integration has become as a valuable tool in remote sensing applications. The main objective of multi-sensor data integration is to synergistically combine sensory data from disparate sources—with different characteristics, resolution, and quality—in order to provide more reliable, accurate, and useful information required for diverse mapping, modelling and monitoring applications. Therefore, the integration of these disparate data contributes to the robust interpretation of the observed objects/scenes and provides the basis of effective planning and decision-making. Over the past few decades, multi-sensor data integration has received tremendous attention and different approaches and techniques have been presented with the aim of improving integration quality and exploring more application areas. However, with the emergence of new sensors and broader diversity of the intended applications, new methodologies and best practices for multi-sensor data integration need to be developed and their advantages and limitations actively to be shared by scientific research community.
This Special Issue invites submissions on latest advances in remote sensing multi-sensor data integration. The focus of the contributions to the Special Issue will be on reviewing current progress, on highlighting the latest methodologies that have been proposed to respond to the needs of multi-sensor data processing, and on pointing out the strategies to be thought to meet the requirements of potential applications.
The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Multi-sensor, multi-temporal, multi-resolution data integration
- Fusion of heterogeneous sensor information
- Heterogeneous data processing
- Performance: measures and evaluation
- Applications to urban studies, 3D reconstruction and modelling, environmental monitoring, etc.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
