Its now time to conduct a survey on the research in multispectral imaging, both theatrical and applications. Multispectral imaging first started in remote sensing with very wide band sensors. This science is now popular in many areas. In the past two years, we have been able to find in the market snapshot or push-broom cameras dedicated to machine vision. These new cameras are based on new operating systems. They are dedicated to real time, allowing the orderly acquisition of moving objects. Compared to color imaging, multispectral imagery covers several areas, including:
Research has led to many advances in the last 10 years, but there are still unresolved issues.
Multispectral imaging could be divided into three major areas of research:
- The analysis methods of spectral data for their exploitation;
- The MSFA (multispectral Filter Array);
- Filtering technologies.
There is not a unique approach to solve the problems. This edition expects to propose new methods and new systems of filtering and analyzing multispectral data in both theory and applications.
Multispectral image analysis: Must cover the fields of compression, visualization of the spectral data, identification, deep learning, etc.
The MSFA: Must allow highlighting spectral reconstruction methods and linking with the CFA widely developed for color imaging technologies. It will also include the possibility of using MSFA in real time, for example, snapshot cameras.
Filtering: Must include the methods of selections of spectral bands and new developments of filters based on microelectronics, such as nanotechnology. Contributions will focus on making multispectral cameras more efficient and extending their application to mobile objects.

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. Journal of Imaging 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.
