Engineering Remote Sensing

A section of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292).

Section Information

The importance of remote sensing methods and techniques for different engineering branches has been well known for several decades, even before the deployment of the first satellite sensor for Earth observation. Indeed, it has been recognized since the first applications of aerial and close-range photogrammetry to mapping, digital terrain and man-made object modeling, ground and infrastructures geomatic monitoring, cultural heritage documentation, and industrial metrology. These still constitute most of the fields of remote sensing applications in engineering.

Anyway, continuous technology improvement (with respect to sensors and computational facilities) has made available more and more data, in an increasingly distributed and shared way, and at a higher and higher rate; thanks to this, new important application fields have been opened, such as natural hazard and disasters monitoring and documentation, and intelligent transport systems. In addition, requests for new demanding applications have asked for new data quality assessment, integration, and analysis methods.

The main aim of this section is therefore the presentation and discussion of new sensors and data processing methods, in relation to the above-mentioned application fields, related to civil, constructional, environmental, industrial safety, and civil protection engineering. Research as well as review articles on these topics are welcome within the Special Issues of this section.
