This Special Issue will actively contribute emerging techniques and knowledge to global geospatial information and hazards management incorporated with earth observation systems for environmental changes with innovation, research, development, problem-solving, and embedded products toward a smart and geo-intelligent world. This Special Issue will present integrated technologies for disaster risk reduction and environmental changes with solutions management implementation in various parts of the world. We encourage papers from various aspects of Global Geospatial Information Technology, and future trends in geomatics to support the global geospatial disasters reduction and environmental sustainability vision with contributing to building a better world. Therefore, the subject area will cover various disciplines including digital transformation and data sharing; artificial intelligence and machine learning; computer vision for 3D real-world reconstruction; LiDAR technologies and mobile sensing; Building Information Management System (BIMS); mapping; 3D modelling; big data analytics; deep learning; artificial intelligence with related digital environments and earth; geoalgorithms; and any other related subjects such as natural hazards, disaster management, and earth observation systems for environmental changes and geohazards. Furthermore, this Special Issue will respond to current problem solving regarding the growing need for a smart and intelligent world that requires big data for analysis, integration, and dissemination, using innovative solutions.
The sections that best match the scope of the research topic:
Environmental and earth sciences, geomatics and big data analytics, geosensing and mobile sensing, digital transformation and sharing data, artificial intelligence and machine learning, smart cities and smart environments, natural hazards and disaster management, geoalgorithm development, visualization, and real-time and related topics that can work for digital earth and intelligent world development.

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 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
