Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Interests: three-dimensional landscape visualization; geographic information system (GIS) modeling and programming; landscape disturbance (i.e., forest fire and beetle infestation) monitory using GIS and remote sensing images and natural resources inventory
Interests: geovisualization and geoscience in spatial cognition studies in human and non-human animals; Geotechnologies, such as geographic information system (GIS) and remote sensing; to explore animal movements and to contribute with natural landscape conservation
Geovisualization allows a wide range of users from lay-public to GIS specialists to explore, synthesize, present, integrate, and analyze their geospatial data with different degrees of interaction from low (passive) to high (active). Nowadays, the techniques of geovisualization in 3D perspective views, 4D animations, virtual objects and environments can aid natural and cultural resource managers in the decision making process to communicate decisions/plans to the public, as well as aid in scientific analysis. In addition, the use of remotely sensed and derived data (e.g., terrestrial, airborne and satellite digital imagery, radar, and LiDAR) provides more possibilities, while using large volume data sources to efficiently generate geovisualizations also present challenges.
This special issue focuses on:
- geovisualization and analysis of dynamic phenomena (e.g., movement data and change detection)
- animation and real-time interactive 2D, 3D, and 4D geovisualizations
- reliability and uncertainty of spatio-temporal data
- photo-realism and augmented reality in geovisualization
- applications of geovisualization such as in landscape design, decision making, disaster response analysis of social interactions and education
- technical improvements of geovisualization using various mobile devices (e.g., smart phones, PDAs, tablets and GPS)
- gaming technology for simulation and geospatial education (geo-gaming)

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 1700 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.
