Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
During the past decade we have witnessed great development in various types of sensors carried on different platforms varying from handheld devices and physical urban sensors to satellites. This has enabled the collection of a tremendous amount of geo-spatial data from the urban environment. Methods and algorithms are needed to inspect, analyze and apply this big data in a proper and efficient way in everyday applications. Regarding crowd-sensing technology, there has been special concern and attention paid to the reliability, credibility and usability of such volunteered geographic information for being used in projects. It is believed that integrating data sources from traditional wireless sensor networks with emerging mobile crowd sensing, as well as data sets produced by satellites, can further enhance novel large-scale sensing applications and systems into every sector of the economy.
We welcome scholars to share their research on challenges and solutions of Crowd-Sensing and Remote Sensing Technologies for Smart Cities.

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. 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 2000 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.
