Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Spatial metadata are a critical part of spatial data infrastructure by which custodians and users of spatial data organise and access the data. Records of spatial metadata are created by custodians, following national and international standards. While spatial metadata have served the needs of custodians well in terms of data organisation, it is always argued that users do not find the records useful due to several reasons, such the content, organisation of records, user-friendliness, and fitness for purpose. There is a knowledge gap in how spatial metadata systems should evolve so that users have a better experience with the records. This Special Issue invites researchers and practitioners to submit original work on user-focused spatial metadata systems. We accept a wide range of contributions, such as metadata data issues relevant to user requirement analysis, user metadata interaction, metadata standards, data and metadata modeling, data catalogues, metadata for 3D and 4D spatial data, spatial metadata 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0. We welcome submissions from diverse disciplines, including urban planning, public safety, geographic information science, Human–Computer Interaction, Internet of Things, Big Data, and others.

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. ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1000 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.
