ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing - Theme Issue
Air- and Spaceborne Traffic Monitoring

Guest Editors:

Planned publication date: Winter, 2006


With the recent advances in sensor technology, the automatic detection, characterization and monitoring of traffic using air-borne and space-borne data has become an emerging field of research. Today, a variety of approaches has been developed showing great potential to complement existing ground-based methods for traffic parameter determination. Approaches for vehicle detection and monitoring include not only video cameras but nearly the whole range of available sensors such as optical aerial and satellite sensors, infrared cameras, SAR systems, and airborne LIDAR.

You are encouraged to contribute to this special issue by submitting your latest research and development results in the areas of vehicle detection and traffic monitoring from air-borne or space-borne data, more specifically:

Papers must be original contributions, not previously published or submitted to other journals. Papers published or submitted for publication in conference proceedings may be considered provided that they are considerably extended and improved. Substantive research and relevant-for-practice papers will be preferred. Papers must follow the instructions for authors described at
Please submit the full manuscript to by March 12, 2006.

Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing (PE&RS)
Special Issue on Remote Sensing Data Fusion

Guest Editors:

Planned publication date: February 2008


This special issue of Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing (PE&RS) will focus on recent developments in fusion theory and methodology on aerial and space remote sensing data. Submissions may address, but are not limited to the following topics:

This special issue intends to include original and influential contributions in this topic. All submissions will be peer-reviewed in line with PE&RS policy. Because of the page limit of each PE&RS issue, not all submissions recommended for acceptance by the review panel may be included in the special issue. Under this circumstance, the editors will select the most relevant ones for inclusions in the special issue at their own discretion. Other accepted submissions will be recommended to PE&RS for publications in regular issues.

Authors must prepare the manuscripts according to the PE&RS Instruction to Authors, published in each PE&RS issue and also available on the ASPRS web site at

Please submit the manuscript in PDF format electronically to both editors

by December 29, 2006.
