Special Issue "Pixel-Based Image Compositing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2019.
Pixel-based image compositing algorithms exploit pixel properties (e.g., location and spectral information) aiming to create spatially-contiguous image composites across large areas. The goal is to create high-quality, noisy-free, and consistent datasets to support a wide range of applications based on remote sensing imagery. Examples of applications, which often benefit from the use of image composites, include land cover mapping, land use modeling, change detection and understanding, ecosystem monitoring, and urban planning.
Despite the huge progress in the area in the past decades with regard to the development of effective algorithms and models for pixel-based image composition, the generation of high-quality images to be used in such applications is still a cumbersome task. Common challenges include: Cloud, haze, and aerosol contamination; proper handling of boundary artifacts; lack of consistency across different bands; inexistence of methods to define suitable composite period lengths; lack of efficient algorithms for dealing with massive datasets.
The overarching goal of this Special Issue is to present state-of-the-art research outcomes in pixel-based image compositing, focusing on both novel effective and efficient algorithms, and existing needs in emerging applications and case studies.

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.
