The plethora of geospatial data and tools for use in different domains and aspects of environmental research has led to multidiscipline applications on land and sea, driven both from the needs of scientific research and also from the private sector. This Special Issue invites application using Remote Sensing and GIS in real world case studies for an effective analysis at different scales. Applications in spatial planning, species and habitats conservation, urban biodiversity, use of historical aerial images for change detections at inaccessible areas, ecosystem management from all biomes, ecosystem services mapping and valuation are welcome. Application results and discussions, especially those targeting contributions to exploring research framework linked with societal needs, are highly welcome. Papers selected for this Special Issue are subjected to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications in Remote Sensing and GIS in Environmental Studies.Dr. Dimitris Poursanidis
