The twenty-first century brings with it significant challenges for managing our freshwater resources, including flood and drought prediction and mitigation, erosion and related chemical and radiological pollution, and provision of potable water in both urban and isolated environments. Among the more powerful tools to attack these challenges is the modern geographic information system (GIS) and its related technologies. This Special Issue brings together papers from a wide variety of GIS modeling specialists from traditional GIS modelers to big geo-data analysts, from remote sensors to field data collectors. It includes those who rely strictly on GIS technology, those who employ tightly coupled GIS and hydrological modeling scenarios, and those who prefer loosely coupled GIS and hydrological modeling scenarios. The papers, while focusing on GIS modeling of hydrological settings, deal with a considerable range of related topics. Encouraged are papers regarding new algorithms, or those demonstrating unique applications, articles linking land and shore interactions, those dealing with issues of data sparsity, others with data overload, papers focusing on anthropogenic cause-and-effect relationships, and others looking at modeling the impacts of climate change on surface and groundwater. Among the more critical modeling research is that of human impacts of water sparsity, flood and drought hazard prediction and abatement, community response modeling to flooding and drought conditions, reservoir impacts modeling, and many more. Reviews of research to date on the aforementioned topics are welcome, as are cutting-edge model implementation and testing papers. Evaluation of new remote sensing technologies and combinations of sensing technologies for GIS hydrological modeling are welcome as well. Evaluation of other new data sources, even hypothetical data for their modeling potential, should be considered for inclusion in this issue. Assessment of Citizen Science inputs into GIS and other type of modelling for water extremes are welcome. Comparative analyses of different software and/or different algorithms, especially those linked with ground verification, are encouraged for submission to this Special Issue.

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. ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information 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 1400 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.
