Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With over half the planets human population estimated to live in urban agglomerations, urban systems pose unique Remote Sensing challenges to monitoring green-space and vegetation status, urban sprawl and population growth, traffic and pollution characterization, urban heat island effects, impermeability mapping, disaster response and civil defense.

With recent advances in the resolution of remote sensing systems, in-situ measurement networks, GPS and live video feeds, semi/automated geo-object based image analysis (GEOBIA) and web-based geospatial data infrastructures, new holistic opportunities exist for modeling the physical, environmental and socioeconomic variables governing and emerging from complex urban settings. However, much remains to be accomplished. In response to these needs, this Special Issue seeks to highlight leading edge Urban Remote Sensing research that represents critical advances in the algorithms, methodologies and applications related to the analysis and visualization of urbanscapes with geospatial technologies.

Submissions in a broad range of Urban Remote Sensing related research and applications are encouraged. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • 3D urban modeling from satellite, airborne and terrestrial sensors
  • Data processing methods and algorithms
  • Disasters, monitoring and change analysis
  • Multi-disciplinary case studies
  • Multiscale sensors and systems: specific ‘urbanscape’ challenges
  • Multispectral/SAR sensor data integration
  • Radar and LiDAR applications
  • Scale issues related to urbanscapes
  • The Urban Heat Island Effect and thermal sensing
  • Urban applications of high-resolution optical sensors
  • Urban data synthesis and analysis
  • Visualization issues and Virtual Reality applications
