    Special Issue on Earth Observation and Digital Earth


    GIS is a spatial information system with the main research contents of collecting, storing, managing, analyzing and describing data related to the earth's surface and spatial geographic distribution. With the development and popularization of computer technology, GIS and the research of "Digital Earth" based on it play an increasingly important role in the development of science and technology. Using earth observation technology, not only meteorological prediction, resource exploration, environmental monitoring, crop yield estimation, land use classification and other work have been carried out, but also the prediction and prevention of natural disasters, such as wind-dust storms, droughts and floods, volcanoes, earthquakes, debris flows, have been scientifically studied. It has effectively promoted the economic development of all countries in the world.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring earth observation and digital earth. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Earth observation and real-time GIS
    • Application of GIS, RS and GPS in digital earth research
    • Environment and disaster monitoring
    • Satellite positioning technology
    • Terrain analysis and modeling
    • Digital earth and precision agriculture
    • Digital earth and intelligent transportation
    • Air-space-ground integration and earth observation

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Earth Observation and Digital Earth” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
