Special Issue "Remote Sensing and SAR for Building Monitoring"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2024 | Viewed by 4039
Interests: UAV; building monitoring
Building monitoring using remote sensing data plays an important role in urban planning, disaster management, navigation, the updating of geographic databases, and other geospatial applications. The rapid development of image processing techniques and easily available very-high-resolution multispectral, hyperspectral, LiDAR, SAR, and UAS remote sensing images have further boosted research on building-extraction-related topics. Of particular note, in recent years, many research institutes and associations have provided open source datasets and annotated training data to meet the demands of advanced artificial intelligence models, bringing new opportunities to develop advanced approaches to building extraction and monitoring.
In addition to building masks, more research has arisen on the automatic generation of 2/3 building models from remote sensing data. This Special Issue aims to feature cutting-edge methodologies and applications, as well as reviews, related to one or more of the following topics:
- Advanced UAV/UAS for building detection and extraction;
- Semantic remote sensing image segmentation;
- 2D/3D change detection;
- Disaster monitoring;
- Rooftop modelling from remotely sensed data;
- 3D point-cloud segmentation;
- Building boundary extraction and vectorization;
- Large-scale urban growth monitoring;
- Weakly supervised urban classification;
- Time-series remote sensing data analysis;
- Roof-top modelling;
- Urban object (vehicle, road, etc.) detection;
- Multi-sensor, multi-resolution, and multi-modality data fusion;
- Climate adaptation of smart cities;
- Sustainable development.

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.
