Photogrammetric remote sensing is evolving, especially with the introduction of novel optical and SAR sensors and due to novel processing methods and innovative applications. Methods from computer vision, machine learning, and deep learning influence remote-sensing-based metrology and foster novel applications—for example, forest assessment, city modeling, land cover and land use classification, carbon reporting, farm land monitoring, change detection, glacier observation, flood prediction, coastal mapping, determination of subsidence, or disaster damage mapping. The driving power are advances in photogrammetry and in remote sensing, allowing the generation of higher-quality source material from, for instance, stereo matching, 3D reconstruction, neural networks on 2D images and on 3D point clouds.
This Special Issue aims to collect papers discussing such advances and breakthroughs in photogrammetric remote sensing. Submitted manuscripts should mainly focus on novelties introduced by recent approaches that link photogrammetry and remote sensing, for example, with the following topics:
- 3D remote sensing with SAR and optical sensors;
- Image orientation and geo-referencing;
- Discrete 3D representation of the surface of the Earth;
- Digital surface, elevation and terrain models (DSMs, DEMs, DTMs);
- Forest assessment;
- City modeling;
- Land cover and land use classification;
- Carbon reporting;
- Farm land monitoring;
- Change detection;
- Glacier observation;
- Flood prediction;
- Coastal mapping;
- Determination of subsidence;
- Disaster damage mapping.

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.
