Human transformation of landscapes is pervasive and accelerating across the Earth. Increasingly, rapid urbanization and a rising per capita resource use are driving agricultural intensification, large-scale land acquisitions, and global supply chain demands that are reshaping the ecology of landscapes across the Earth’s land surface. As a result, it is possible that the greatest impacts of urban societies are occurring outside of cities, as profound alterations of Earth’s topography, climate, ecosystems, soil physical and chemical properties, and associated Earth-surface processes. Remote sensing data can greatly assist in the monitoring of anthropogenic landscapes, and analyzing any effects of human activities on Earth-surface processes.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to present the state of science on the use of remote sensing for the analysis of human impacts on Earth. Multi-temporal remote sensing analysis, and specific case studies of different regions of the world, are welcomed.
Publication: as paper accepted they will appear in the special issue web-page.
Type of special issue: Open for all submissions within the scope of the special issue. In addition to scientific papers, we encourage 1 paper review and 2 short commentaries.

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 1800 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.
