Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Global Geodetic Observing System (GGOS) advances the knowledge of Earth’s dynamic systems by quantifying our planet’s changes in space and time. The aim is to better understand global change phenomena in order to make informed decisions that will determine the well-being of future generations. This ‘just cause’ requires the continuous deployment of observing platforms, primarily airborne and spaceborne, that collect an unprecedented amount of measurements using different types of sensors. Advancements in fundamental geodetic research and innovative modeling now need validation using advanced data analytics methods. The measurements keep piling up and are waiting to be exploited to achieve the ‘just cause’ of GGOS. This requires novel signal processing methods to be developed. However, the analysis, integration and interpretation of the raw measurements are sometimes inadequate to isolate minute signals buried in noise many orders of magnitude larger. To achieve insightful and meaningful results, we need to enhance the signal processing methodologies in Geodesy, always approaching them from the perspective of systems and physical processes. This Special Issue of Sensors aims to emphasize advances in the development, enhancement, integration, testing, and validation of signals, and image processing methods and algorithms for all types of sensors and measurements. Theoretical, experimental and review papers are strongly encouraged, with no restriction on their length.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Optimal signal processing.
  • Emerging applications of signal and information processing.
  • Radar signal processing.
  • Remote sensing processing.
  • Spectral and wavelet analyses of signals and systems.
  • Sensor measurement fusion and integration
  • Sensor error modeling and calibration.
  • Advanced sensor characterization.
  • Metrology and standards.
  • Novel multisensor integration strategy.
  • Sensor programming.
  • Comprehensive error analysis in Discrete Kalman Filtering.
  • Robust and Adaptive Filtering Algorithms.
  • Indoor georeferencing technology.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Sensors 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 2600 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.
