Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Topographic mapping is a fundamental procedure in various field-based studies, including in geomorphology, archaeology, ecology, and environmental sciences. A variety of sensors have recently been developed to perform mapping of landforms. For instance, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been used to capture optical or infrared images to carry out three-dimensional and multiband mapping of the land surface. Aerial or terrestrial light detection and ranging (lidar) technology have often been applied to measure surficial objects on the land such as forests. With such techniques, detailed characteristics of the land surface morphology can be investigated, and time-series analysis with multitemporal measurements enables us to detect changes in the Earth surface by an excellent spatiotemporal resolution.

This Special Issue aims to present novel and innovative applications of multiple sensors and devices used for topographic mapping. For this, we call papers addressing the wide range of applications of sensors used for topographic mapping. Either review articles or original research papers or technical papers related to the application for topographic mapping are welcome.

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.
