(This article belongs to the Special Issue Remote Sensing of Urban Ecology and Sustainability)
The remote sensing of urban ecology and sustainability is an emerging topic to understand the human living environment in urban areas from outer space, airplanes, and unmanned aerial vehicles. In this editorial, we provide an overview of the five papers published in this Special Issue and offer suggestions for future research directions in this field, both with respect to the remote sensing platforms and algorithms and the development of new applications.
