The use of GIS has for many years been widely applied in various disciplinary fields, serving as an important support to scientific activity and, in the planning field, to the decisional and programmatic phase. Some morphological and environmental contexts, such as the fluvial one, are particularly suitable for experimenting with new tools, as well as useful for constructing detailed geomorphological maps, also through the semi-automatic extraction of the main landforms, or for applying morpho-evolutionary models of the river landscape, to define areas at risk of flooding and built linear and areal erosion models.
The main purpose of this Special Issue is to propose a wide series of studies and research, in which the use of GIS and/or specific app are functional to the representation of geomorphology and river dynamics, linear erosion processes, ancient landscapes reshaped by the fluvial action, flooding areas, and historical anthropical changes of the river landscape and land use.
Papers with multidisciplinary study approaches will be particularly appreciated.

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. Water 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.
