Digital Terrain analysis and modeling has been a flourishing interdisciplinary field for years, with applications in hydrology, geomorphology, soil science, engineering projects and computer sciences. With the rapid growth of survey technologies and computing advances, in particular with the availability of high-resolution topography (i.e., sub-meter to meter resolution) at local or regional scale, and moderate resolution (5–30 m) global scale data, the challenge is now the interpretation of surface morphology for a better understanding of processes at a variety of scales, from micro, to local, to global. Increased ease of data acquisition from various sources (platforms and sensors) led to a vast data pool with unprecedented spatio-temporal range, density, and resolution, which requires for efficient data processing to extract sought-after information. This Special Issue focuses on terrain analysis applications that advance the fields of hydrology, geomorphology, soil science, GIS and computer science. Submissions related to new techniques in high-resolution terrain production and analysis, independent of the subject, as well as studies focused on associated error and uncertainty analyses, are also welcome.

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.
