Geospatial Sensing 2020 – from Sensing to Understanding our World
Earth observation networks, e.g., in-situ sensors and remote sensing systems, deliver a multitude of data that capture the state of our environment. These datasets are highly valued by scientists and stakeholders from a variety of domains and backgrounds such as hydrology, marine sciences, traffic management, environmental monitoring, energy supply, or smart city systems.
An active research and development community is working on new approaches to share, manage, discover, analyze, and visualize geospatial sensor data. This Special Issue, along with the Geospatial Sensing Conference 2020, provides a platform for scientists, developers, and users to examine current challenges, present best practices, and discuss future developments. While selected presentations from the conference will be featured in this Special Issue, we invite anyone engaged in any work related to the theme of “Geospatial Sensing – from Sensing to Understanding our World” to submit a manuscript for publication. This issue is dedicated but not limited to the selected papers of this conference.
