Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last decades, the quest for geospatial data is quickly increasing, mostly thanks to the number of location based services and applications, which are becoming of common use in the mobile devices of a significant part of the World population. Mobile mapping technologies have been largely used for rapidly collecting accurate spatial data of quite large areas. These systems are usually based on multi-sensor integration: a GNSS-based positioning module is usually integrated with a scanning and/or imaging system in order to produce georeferenced accurate 3D models. Furthermore, the recent introduction of spatial models including also some semantic information about the 3D data (e.g. BIM, CityGML), and the development of highly effective artificial intelligence techniques, are increasing the interest also on the semantic interpretation of the spatial data.

This Special Issue aims at presenting new research advancements on mobile scanning and imaging systems, both in terms of 3D spatial data generation (e.g. new devices, integration techniques, algorithmic advancements) and on the interpretation of the collected data (e.g. automatic segmentation and recognition, generation of semantic models from 3D data). Contributions on both terrestrial and aerial systems will be appreciated.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 1700 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.
