In recent years, the application of advanced geospatial technologies in research aimed at understanding, modeling, and mapping the environment has been growing. Moreover, although the term Quality of Life (QoL) is difficult to universally define, the international literature agrees that the assessment of QoL and well-being has to consider, among others, the spatial dimension of amenities such as environmental and urban conditions. Active research is ongoing with regard to these issues in both urban and rural environments.
This Special issue is devoted to the exploitation of GIS-based technologies in analyses focusing on environmental monitoring and the assessment of well-being and QoL. We call for original papers from both stakeholders and researchers around the world that focus on topics related to the monitoring and analysis of QoL and the environment.
