    Special Issue on GIS and Geographic Analysis


    The combination of GIS and geography is helpful for geographers to analyze a series of regional or global geographic problems, and to study the structural characteristics, distribution rules, evolution process of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere, as well as the transmission mode and dynamic mechanism of material flow, energy flow and information flow among them. At present, the development of GIS, RS, GPS, DPS, ES (5S) technology has gradually formed an integrated technology system with GIS as the core, which provides a powerful analytical means and tools for the study of geography.


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

    • Geographic analysis for urban and regional development
    • Land use and cover change
    • GIS and geological tectonic features
    • Analysis of geographic model
    • Virtual geographic environment
    • Integration of remote sensing and map
    • Web GIS technologies
    • Analysis of global environment and resources based on GIS

    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 – GIS and Geographic Analysis” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
