Special Issue "Visualisation of Big Data in Agriculture"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Interests: Geographic Information System (GIS); multidimensional data modelling and visualization; climatic and Earth Observation data analysis for agricultural applications
It is my pleasure to announce the opening of a new Special Issue in the journal Applied Science entitled “Visualisation of Big Data in Agriculture”. The Issue will focus on leveraging various contemporary existing as well as emerging data sources in both crop and livestock production. Innovative data processing and analysis methods are of particular interest, in addition to the final presentation and visualisation of the synthesised information.
As contemporary data science usually handles various types of data from which the final information is acquired, there is particular interest in manuscripts processing, analysing, and visualising the outputs of several kinds of data sources together, with a definite impact on agriculture.
This Issue expects manuscripts that describe the utilisation of Earth Observation data (both multi and hyperspectral), climatic data, in-situ sensor data (connected to IoT), crowdsourced data, linked data, etc. together with traditional geographic data, stressing the multidimensionality of the data (e.g., the third and temporal dimensions of the data).
Next, each manuscript should describe an application of the data analysis/visualisation in agricultural processes and evaluate its impact, for example, on the optimisation of production or mitigation of environmental impact.
As the Issue looks for innovative methods of applying big data in agriculture, fundamental aspects of big data must be addressed (volume, variety, veracity) in the manuscripts.
I hope you find the Issue topic interesting, and I look forward to your research contributions.Dr. Karel Jedlička
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.
