Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to the continual advances in lightweight and less expensive versions of multispectral sensors and remote sensing platform technology in recent years, end-users are provided with a multitude of timely observational capabilities for the better sensing and monitoring of the Earth’s surface.

To benefit from the full potential of these ever-advancing productive systems in a more flexible and smart manner in many applied fields, we need to continue to improve our analysis and processing capabilities accordingly. Joint efforts for fully automated, easy-to-use and efficient systems are a key direction for facilitating and maturing the operational use of remote sensing.

This Special Issue is thus intended to cover the last advances in the following primary topics of interest (but not limited to these) related to Multispectral Image Acquisition, Processing and Analysis:

  • State-of-the-art and emerging multispectral technologies, including new platforms (satellites, aerials and unmanned aerial vehicles) and sensors with:
    • Spatial, spectral and temporal sensing abilities;
    • Georeferencing and navigation abilities;
    • Cooperative sensing;
  • Advanced multispectral image/data analysis and processing:
    • Lossless/lossy compression and denoising;
    • Geometrical, registration and georeferencing processing;
    • Feature extraction, classification, object recognition, change detection and domain adaptation;
  • Multisource data fusion:
    • Optical–radar fusion and pan-sharpening;
    • Field sensing;
    • Crowd sensing.

A wide spectrum of recent applications highlighting Multispectral Image Acquisition, Processing and Analysis are targeted including biodiversity assessment, vegetation and environmental monitoring (the identification of diversity in grassland species, invasive plants, biomass estimation and wetlands), precision agriculture in agricultural ecosystems and crop management, water resource and quality management in nearshore coastal (mapping near-surface water constituents and benthic habitats) and inland waters (the analysis and surveying of rivers and lakes), sustainable forestry and agroforestry (forest preservation, the mapping of forest species and wildfire detection), mapping archaeological areas, urban development and management, and hazard monitoring.

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 2400 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.
