Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Traditionally, field sensing provides helpful information about various phenomena, events and features. However, field data gathering might be a difficult, time-consuming and expensive approach. Recently, remote sensing technology has been emerging as an alternative tool for field sensing techniques, providing useful information for researchers, decision makers and managers to work effectively on a problem. Remote sensing data can cover larger areas and can be obtained from various sensors such as multispectral/hyperspectral remote sensors and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) remote sensors. Remote sensing datasets, coupled with machine learning and spatial analyses, can lead to paradigm shifts in different disciplines, such as geographic information science (GIS), civil engineering, earth and soil sciences, atmospheric sciences and disaster sciences.

The objective of this Special Issue is to provide a new perspective of joint use of remote sensing and field sensing datasets for readers to understand clearly how remote and field sensing are complementary tools for monitoring events (e.g., earthquake, flood, drought, etc.), exploring features (e.g., object extraction, object detection, etc.) and preparing GIS databases. We encourage manuscript submissions (review or original research articles) related, but not strictly limited, to the following:

  • Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) remote sensing and field sensing for monitoring of natural events;
  • Field and remote sensing techniques for built-up and environmental studies;
  • Machine learning techniques for field and remote sensing data;
  • Big remote sensing data for geographic information system (GIS);
  • Optical/hyperspectral remote sensing together with field sensing for monitoring of natural events;
  • Remote-sensing-based data driven approaches;
  • Spatiotemporal image analysis;
  • Feature extraction using remote sensing and field observations;
  • Time-series analysis of SAR interferometry (InSAR) for natural hazards supported by field sensing;
  • Field and remote sensing applications for agricultural studies

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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
