Accurate digital surface model (DSM) is important for many applications, including urban planning, land surveying before construction, urban change monitoring, etc. Lidar and radar have been widely used for obtaining the DSM information. Moreover, advances in stereo imaging using airborne and satellite imagers have also enabled the creation of DSM using optical images. At the same time, high resolution color, multispectral (MS), and hyperspectral (HS) images are also available for land cover classification and change detection applications. Some airborne imagers can achieve centimetre resolutions and satellite images also achieve sub-meter resolution. In this special issue, we aim at presenting current state-of-the-art and most recent advances in land cover classification and change detection in 2D and 3D. Some practical applications are also included. Potential topics include:
- DSM generation using airborne and satellite stereo imagers
- New technologies in Lidar and radar for DSM generation
- Land cover classification using optical, multispectral, and hyperspectral
- Land cover classification by fusing MS or HS images with DSM
- Change detection using optical, multispectral, and hyperspectral
- Change detection by fusing optical, MSI, and HIS images with DSM
- Digital terrain model (DTM) extraction by removing vegetation and man-made structures

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.
