Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The distribution of energy resources is related to geospatial characteristics such as geographic location and surrounding topography. Renewable energy resources such as solar energy and wind power vary in values depending on their location and altitude. Moreover, geospatial data analysis is required to solve problems such as interpolation, potential estimation, and optimal location analysis of renewable energy. It is also used when designing an optimal pipeline network for oil and gas transportation or when evaluating risk in mining areas. Thus, geospatial data play a vital role in energy resource research by providing the means of looking at the world and tools for solving complex spatial problems. We can see that many global organizations and national data centers collect, analyze, visualize, and manage various geospatial data for energy resources research. This Special Issue (SI) aims to encourage researchers to address the geospatial and numeric data of energy resources research. This SI will cover a broad spectrum of original research contributions and reviews on all areas of energy resources, including (but not limited to):

  • Geospatial data in renewable energy;
  • Geospatial data in mining;
  • Geospatial data in oil and gas;
  • Geospatial data in utilities.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
