The growing awareness and usability of image-based methods for generating 3D models and for deriving semantic information about our intensively used environment is increasing. The past years have witnessed many important changes in every stage of the photogrammetric pipeline and multiple applications have demonstrated the versatility and capability of photogrammetry in retrieving 3D metric, as well as semantic information from imagery. New UAV platforms, aerial cameras and satellite sensors are available for mapping and 3D modeling purposes. However, besides numerous societal needs and reasons for employing photogrammetric (3D) products, and despite the recent advances in automated 3D reconstruction and sematic interpretation of images, there are still many challenges and open research issues that need to be tackled.
This Remote Sensing Special Issue is meant to support the abovementioned scope by collecting and publishing full papers on related topics. Extended and improved papers from related conferences are also welcome.
Authors are invited to submit papers related to the 3D reconstruction based on aerial and satellite imagery and to the semantic interpretation of these data, particularly:
- UAV, airborne and satellite data capturing sensors for the generation of 3D topographic data
- oblique aerial cameras for mapping purposes
- very high-resolution satellite optical sensors
- sensor calibration and characterization
- feature extraction and dense image matching
- image classification, 3D object recognition, and reconstruction
- LOD city modelling
- processing of very large datasets and 3D modeling at national scale
- benchmarking, validation procedures and consistency of the generated 3D data

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. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2200 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.
