Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

More than one thousand satellites are dedicated to Earth observation, providing a constant and huge flow of “remote sensing” images. Extraction of information from these images enables a better understanding of spatial and temporal evolution of natural and artificial phenomena. However, these images require being geographically registered in order to be efficiently used in a GIS (geographic information system). This process is known as “image fusion and modeling”. For example, when having many images of the same area, we can use a “super-resolution” algorithm in order to produce an image with a better resolution, or we can produce additional knowledge using a “deep learning” process. It is also interesting to mix information from images of different modalities and use a 3D support through a DEM (digital elevation model). Applications are numerous and deal with fields such as environment monitoring, urban planning, forestry, water management, agriculture, and several other ones, this list not being limited. Submissions will deal with methodology (algorithms, systems, etc.) and with applications.

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.
