Special Issue "Integrating GIS and Remote Sensing in Soil Mapping and Modeling"
A special issue of ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (ISSN 2220-9964).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: GIS; remote sensing; soil science; spatial modeling; climate change
Interests: spatial analysis; geostatistics; GIS; machine learning; soil modeling; remote sensing
The aim of this Special Issue is to publish original contributions or review articles that evaluate the integration of GIS and remote sensing in agricultural practice by improving soil quality and environmental health. The complexity of spatial data and modeling methods in soil science imposes the need for combined integrated approaches of robust methods, leading to more accurate and reliable outcomes toward sustainable soil management. More specifically, we are interested in studies that investigate the impact of widely applied geographical approaches in everyday soil research and activities. This Special Issue addresses many aspects, including soil mapping and spatial modeling of soil characteristics, precision agriculture, geostatistics, machine learning, and development of software tools for data collection and processing. Works that directly address the response of anthropogenic intervention to ecosystems and climate change are particularly welcome. Theoretical approaches and lab and/or field experimentation cases are equally welcome to this Special Issue on “Integrating GIS and Remote Sensing in Soil Mapping and Modeling”.
The following topics are welcome (though the Special Issue is not limited to these):
- Mapping and spatial modeling of soil properties using GIS and remote sensing;
- New GIS and remote sensing approaches in agricultural applications that make use of trending techniques such as machine and deep learning algorithms;
- Carbon farming calculation tools for estimating greenhouse gas emissions;
- How sustainable soil management could enhance climate change mitigation and adaptation;
- Technologies provided by remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and global positioning systems (GPS) for maximizing the economic and environmental benefits of precision agriculture.

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. 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.
