Special Issue "Spatio-Temporal Environmental Monitoring and Social Sensing"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Environmental Science and Engineering".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 December 2019.
Department of Geomatics, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan 70101, Taiwan
Interests: We are interested to generate space–time insights from remote sensing, big data, and open data for environmental management and social sensing. Our current research covers four key themes: 1. Environmental Resilience; 2. Human Mobility; 3. Health; 4. Location Intelligence.
Environmental science reflects the interaction of human activities and the natural environment. Mapping spatial and temporal patterns of urban cities and understanding the causes and consequences of such details are critical tasks in the study of global change. As a result of the rapid development of information and data technology, environmental monitoring and social sensing in cities for land cover (use) change, air/water pollution, land subsidence, public health, crime, traffic information, and crowd movement have become important means of analyzing smart city and sustainable earth issues. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health offers an opportunity to publish high-quality multi-disciplinary environmental monitoring and social sensing research.
We will welcome papers related to environmental monitoring and social sensing. For this Special Issue, we invite submissions that provide spatio-temporal information on these environmental and human system dynamics, including GIS, GPS, remote sensing, UAV, social sensing, IoT, and big data. Implications for AI, data mining, and models of environmental monitoring and social sensing may also be addressed.

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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health 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.
