High-Resolution Earth Observation Systems, Technologies, and Applications

Dear Colleagues,

In the past 20 years, many countries have attached great importance to the high-resolution Earth observation system (EOS), technology, and application. In particular, recent China’s Gaofen series satellites, from Gaofen-1 to Gaofen-13, had been successfully launched into space from 2013 to 2020. Until now, the global high-resolution EOS has covered panchromatic, multispectral, hyperspectral, visible, and microwave wavebands. It is fair to say that various high-resolution EOSs constitute the Earth observation with high spatial resolution, high temporal resolution, and high spectral resolution, which have provided strong support for improving the Earth observation capability.

From the perspective of development trend, the application prospect of high-resolution EOS is very extensive. We believe that more and more new high-resolution EOSs will be launched in the near future. Moreover, the application achievements of high-resolution EOS have been very rich at this stage. Therefore, this multidisciplinary topic aims to invite scholars to publish articles on the latest progress and the development trends of high-resolution EOSs, technologies, and applications.

Potential topics for this Topic include, but are not limited to:

  • Current and future high-resolution EOS and missions
  • Innovative Earth observation sensors, concepts, and techniques
  • Artificial intelligence in EOS remote sensing applications
  • On-board real-time processing of EOS remote sensing images
  • EOS remote sensing image recognition and interpretation
  • Quality improvement of EOS remote sensing images
  • High-precision geometric positioning of EOS remote sensing image
  • Super-resolution processing of EOS remote sensing image
  • Multi-source EOS image fusion
  • Other related topics

Deadline for abstract submissions: 31 October 2021.
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 June 2022.
