Modern Geospatial Data Acquisition, Tools and Applications in Interdisciplinary Research

https://www.mdpi.com/journal/applsci/special_issues/Modern_Geospatial

Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The access to geospatial data is the backbone to numerous fields of research related to the fields of geodesy, geosciences, civil engineering, environmental studies, precision in agriculture, and forestry, etc. Thanks to the ongoing advances in instrumentation, software, and availability of open source data, data acquisition has never been more accessible to the public and research sectors. Geospatial techniques are efficient tools for the mapping, monitoring, and assessment of lands. An accurate land survey and field data acquisition can help scientists, policymakers, and stakeholders to improve the decision-making process in regards to better management, planning, and design. Thus, new tools and best practices, both in terms of data capture and in their processing and modelling, can be deployed to identify the most efficient solutions in a rapidly evolving field. This Special Issue aims to present and promote original scientific contributions to the concepts, technologies, methods, and tools in the acquisition and processing of geospatial data in a wide range of interdisciplinary applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • New tools and techniques in field data acquisition, from the traditional topographic-geodetic instrumentations (total stations, GNSS systems, TLS, etc.) to the modern solutions (UAV, LiDAR, digital photogrammetry, satellite images, etc.);
  • Models, methods, techniques, and tools for geospatial applications;
  • Integrating modern techniques of data acquisition in cadastre and technical documentation in order to increase productivity and mitigate field risk;
  • Improving the traditional topographic surveys with the help of geomatics tools and GIS applications;
  • Advances in 3D modelling;
  • New developments in sensors for surveying and monitoring;
  • Surveying methods for monitoring and documentation of the built environment;
  • Techniques for 3D data acquisition and objects reconstruction/modelling;
  • Best practices, guidelines, and planning using acquired geospatial data;
  • Mapping and monitoring in a rapidly urbanizing world;
  • GIS applications in land management, land policy, and decision making.
