Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is dedicated to land administration, that is, the systems used to govern the way land tenure, use, and value are organized amongst people within a jurisdiction. Spatial information, embedded in cadastral maps, is fundamental to these systems. Large-scale vector boundary representations are historically generated using ground-based techniques, however, the dual forces of advances in remote sensing and emergent societal challenges are driving new approaches. Issues of poverty reduction, rapid urbanisation, vertical expansion, and complex infrastructure governance require more rapid, cost-effective, and tailored approaches to 2D and 3D land data creation, analysis, and maintenance. Under exploration are applications of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), laser scanning both airborne and terrestrial (LiDAR), radar interferometry, and automatic feature extraction techniques. Therefore, the specific focus of this Special Issue is the intersection of emergent remote sensing tools and techniques, and the potential contribution to the domain of land administration

Papers are expected to address the following topics:

-Comparisons of alternate remote sensing techniques for 2D and 3D data capture relevant to land administration and cadastres (including UAV imagery, VHRSI, RADAR, LiDAR, and multi-spectral approaches)

-Design and testing of techniques for 2D and 3D cadastral feature extraction from remotely-sensed data sources (including semi-automated methods, algorithm design, and object-based approaches)

-Modelling of data production workflows for scaled 2D and 3D cadastral production (including segmentation techniques, line extraction, contour generation, and pre/post processing requirements)

-Observations from illustrative cases highlighting leading practices in data integration and utilization for 2D and 3D land administration (including both city, provincial, and national level examples)

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 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.
