Natural resources management requires reliable and timely information available at local, regional, national, and global scales. GeoInfomatics, by remote sensing, global navigation satellite systems, geographical information systems, and related technologies provide information for natural resource management, environmental protection, and supporting issues related to sustainable development. Geoinformatics has proven as a powerful technology for studying and monitoring natural resources and in generating modeling for probable scenarios, being an important management and decision-making tool to ensure optimum use of natural resources.
This Special Issue aims to examine to all aspects of geo-informatics related to resource management. We cordially invite original research contributions on topics including but not limited to the following:
- Satellite, aircraft, and UAV platforms to support natural resource management;
- GIS-based decision support systems for analysis, management and scenario simulations;
- Climatic parameters changes;
- Environmental statistics;
- Land use change;
- Big data and machine learning;
- Location-based services;
- And more.

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.
