Geocomputation and remote sensing became fundamental instruments for landscape archaeology over the last few decades. Today large availability of data and efficient tools has promoted the development and application of many quantitative techniques for modelling in landscape archaeology issues. Geocomputation and remote sensing became very important also to develop Support Decision System for archaeological researches, because they are able to support the specialist in each step of the archaeological thinking, from the field survey to the creation of archaeological probabilistic maps, but also as instruments to support result validation.
However advance in knowledge about the reliability and robustness of different methods and a systematic comparison to expert-based maps, methods and interpretations are always required. In this volume contributions regarding the development and application of remote sensing and geocomputation methods (spatial analysis, machine learning, cellular automata, agent-based) for the modelling in landscape archaeology 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. Heritage is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1200 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.
