Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hyperspectral imaging technologies have been widely used in many remote sensing applications, such as agricultural activities, urban planning, and environment monitoring. While the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a slight decline of the industries of the respective applications, with the resuming of businesses, the global market for hyperspectral systems is expected to enjoy an exponential growth in the near future. Hyperspectral remote sensing systems are generating increasingly more voluminous high-dimensional datasets with finer resolutions, which require more efficient methods for image processing and analysis, pattern recognition and target detection, as well as parallel and hardware implementation to support real-time applications.

In this Special Issue, we solicit original contributions that provide new insights on the following topics:

  • hyperspectral image fusion and registration;
  • spatial/spectral/temporal analysis of hyperspectral images;
  • statistical and geometric modeling of hyperspectral images;
  • compressive sensing, and data compression methods for hyperspectral images;
  • scene classification and object detection;
  • machine learning and knowledge-based methods;
  • hardware and parallel implementation methods;
  • new applications of hyperspectral imaging for remote sensing.

Please note that the above list is not exclusive; papers on related topics will also be considered.

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. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
