GIS analysis has become an essential instrument to develop environmental and urban planning or to evaluate the impact of human anthropization in the territory in recent years. The sustainable use of territorial resources, the impact of infrastructures and urban growth, and coastal anthropization detection are just a few examples of topical issues that have experienced rather important transformations in their fields of research at the level of numerical diagnosis, analysis, evaluation, planning, and management, thanks to the major development of GIS tools. This Special Issue seeks contributions involving innovative approaches or relevant case studies regarding land transformation analysis, territorial sustainability, integrated coastal management, environmental impact assessment, natural hazard risk mitigation, etc. through the use of GIS tools. Innovative methodologies, frameworks or significant results from relevant case studies related to all these topics are welcome, but similar ones may also be considered for publication if they fit within the scope of this Special Issue.

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. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1500 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.
