This Special Issue is concerned with the application of measurement (surveying) and navigation systems in order to increase the safety and reliability of maritime operations. It is particularly related to the application of GNSS systems, underwater positioning systems, measurements in the offshore industry, maritime traffic engineering issues and risk analysis.
Measurement applications in the offshore industry include methods of dimensioning, especially laser scanning, total station measurements and ship metrology.
Topics are not limited to the measurement issues themselves; models based on measurements in maritime applications are also welcome.
The overarching aim of this Special Issue is to systematically increase the safety of maritime operations with the help of the presented models and systems.

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 2000 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.
