Remote sensing and photogrammetry technology play an important role in geological survey, mapping, analysis, and interpretation, which is mainly used for geomorphology, structure, lithological mapping, mineralogical identification, alteration mapping, mineral and oil exploration, groundwater and engineering geological studies, geohazard monitoring, coal mine fire mapping, volcano monitoring, earthquake disaster investigations, soil erosion, and environmental applications. Remote sensing and photogrammetry technology not only provides the possibility for geological survey and exploration in remote or difficult-to-reach areas but also leads to savings in terms of workforce and material resources, is safe and reliable, and improves the accuracy and breadth of research.
This Special Issue welcomes academic articles or reviews on the geological applications of remote sensing and photogrammetry and invites relevant scholars to discuss various remote sensing and photogrammetry techniques (such as optical and multispectral sensing, photogrammetry, laser scanning, GNSS, UAV, InSAR/DInSAR/MT-InSAR, GPR) in the frontier applications and future development of various branches of geology. The topics mainly include but are not limited to the following:
- Hyperspectral and multispectral sensors;
- InSAR processing techniques;
- Multitemporal data;
- Integration of multiple sensor types;
- Optical and high-resolution sensors;
- UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles);
- Geological mapping;
- Engineering geology;
- Oil and gas;
- Mineral and geothermal exploration.

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. 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 2700 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.
