Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Advanced wireless sensor networks and MEMS are suitable for application as real-time wireless monitoring systems in earth management. Successful management of large engineering constructions underground or on the ground, as well as geohazards, needs effective monitoring of various parameters depending on the challenge to be addressed and an appropriate safety evaluation method. The reliability of the collected data can be increased by using sensor and data fusion techniques. Data processing and data infrastructure must fit the problem statement. After all, geodata shall be interpreted in terms of geoinformation to be able to address the challenge. In the case of geohazards, it is often important to issue an early warning. This is only possible if the safety status and future development of the acquired data and, thus, geoinformation can be evaluated.
List of topics:
- Monitoring in earth management
- Smart sensor networks
- Strategies for sensor and data fusion
- Data processing and data infrastructure
- From geodata to geoinformation
- From monitoring to early warning

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 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.
