Recording, documentation and visualization of natural and cultural heritage objects and sites is an expanding application area. The selection of the right technology is very important and strictly related to the project requirements, budget and user’s experience. Remote Sensing is a technology of obtaining geometrical and semantic information about the Earth and its environment from noncontact imaging using various types of sensors. Advances in sensor technology push the progress. There exists diverse type of satellite, airborne and terrestrial sensors. The diversity in terms of sensors and systems subsequently brings the diversity in applications. The cultural heritage domain is one fascinating example of the applications.
This special issue seeks the research and review papers covering the algorithms, applications, methodologies and case studies on the recording, documentation and visualization of natural and cultural heritage objects and sites. Topics include, but not limited to:
- 3D modeling from satellite, airborne and terrestrial sensors,
- Sensors and systems,
- Data processing methods and algorithms,
- Visualization issues,
- Virtual reality applications,
- Remote sensing for archaeology,
- Modeling of historic city centers,
- Multi-disciplinary case studies,
- Monitoring and change analysis,
- UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) applications
