In the face of the emergence of Land Change Science (LCS), Geographical Information and Remote Sensing sciences have claimed a central role in observing, quantifying, and monitoring changes in land surfaces. In this Special Issue, recent advances in Remote Sensing and GISc that are related to LCS will be presented.
Land changes studied at a variety of scales, both in space and time, will be presented in an attempt to explore the role of analytical tools and technologies in understanding changing landscapes. Priorities include novel techniques for quantifying and analyzing land change with the use of old and new remote sensors. Combining geographical data from multiple spatial, spectral and thematic scales to quantify changes and their spatial patterns are also among priorities. Issues related to spatial error distribution as well as the detection of false changes through time are of particular interest.
Papers incorporating novel and interesting techniques to study land change, as well as some interesting applications, will be considered. Well-prepared review papers are also welcomed.

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 2200 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.
