Special Issue "Education and Training in Applied Remote Sensing"
A special issue of ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (ISSN 2220-9964).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (7 May 2019).
This Special Issue is dedicated to educational and training programs that enable participants to integrate remote sensing data in applied or operational environments. There is worldwide recognition of the key role that remote sensing data plays in environmental monitoring, forecasting, planning, and related decision-making activities. This has led to a rapid increase in demand for education and training in applied remote sensing.
The overarching goal of the Special Issue is to provide both the educational and remote sensing communities with information to help define barriers and successful approaches to applied remote sensing education and training.
Papers are welcome in any area of environmental decision making, to include air pollution, disasters, ecological, land, and water resources management. Training and educational programs discussed can be in the academic or non-academic sector.
Important note: The goal of this Special Issue is not to discuss the transition of remote sensing education to applied research, but rather how that educational experience translates into professional work at government or private sector organizations who are engaged in decision making activities.
- Success stories in a applied remote sensing education or training, as defined in the previous paragraphs
- Best practices in applied remote sensing education or training
- E-learning and classroom approaches with a proven record of success in transitioning remote sensing data and research products into applied or operational environments
- Funding and institutional mechanisms that have been successful in transitioning remote sensing education and training into applied or operational environments
- Results of methodologies aimed at measuring the barriers and/or success of education and training in applied remote sensing
