Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

3D modeling of plants is a trending research topic which still presents several open problems. The proliferation of novel acquisition systems based on UAVs, terrestrial laser scanners, and LiDAR technology enables the possibility to get detailed knowledge of the 3D structure of vegetation from real-world environments. In this Special Issue, we are interested in novel methodologies focused on plant modeling using remote sensing techniques. In this regard, there are several promising research lines pushing in this direction related to procedural modeling, inverse modeling, and guided procedural modeling which use real-word data as a reference to model the 3D plant structure and plant foliage as realistically as possible. Likewise, such methods focused on realistic simulations of 3D plant models under environmental effects are highly demanded in this topic. Finally, the study of plant geometry usually represents complex geometric shapes whose semantic segmentation is another challenging task to address. This Special Issue on “Advances in Remote Sensing for 3D Plant Modeling” calls for studies that present innovative and/or disruptive ideas, and investigation results that integrate remote sensing data to advance 3D plant reconstruction.

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.
