Landslides play an important role in the evolution of landscapes and still represent a major threat to urban areas and anthropogenic activities, to infrastructures, cultural and environmental heritage.
In the last decades, advanced remote sensing techniques have undergone a significant increase of usage as effective tools for landslide mapping, inventory and monitoring at various scales (these include but are not limited to Radar inteferometry, Lidar, Digital photogrammetry, Optical and Infrared imaging).
The landslide scientific community, practitioners and end-users, have greatly benefited from both the technological development of these techniques, in terms of spatial resolution, accuracy, fast measurement and processing times, and from the data availability and cost-effectiveness. In this perspective, a key issue is still represented by data management and processing tools which, in turn, can lead to a proper and accurate comprehensive view and interpretation of the slope instability processes, with the final aim of implementing mitigation measures for landslide risk management.
The goal of this Special Issue is to gather high-quality original research articles and reviews on innovative geospatial approaches, synergistic use of remote sensing techniques, and case studies applications for landslide detection, mapping and monitoring, from spaceborne, ground-based to UAV platforms.

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.
