Special Issue 2
Journal of Geoinformatics & Geostatistics: An Overview announces its Special Issue entitled: Progress in Geospatial Analysis: GIS and Remote Sensing Integration for Social and Ecological Studies
Geospatial analysis is a type of analysis that is based on a Geographic Information System (GIS). It uses a wide-ranging set of methods, including, but not limited to, geospatial statistics, geospatial information theories, geospatial modeling approaches, computational geometry, geo-visualization techniques, and remote sensing. Remotely sensed data is one of the most important sources of information for geospatial analysis. Both GIS and Remote Sensing have been, and continue to be, important for social and ecological studies.
This Special issue intends to document the progress in geospatial analysis through contributions from scholars from around the world. It particularly focuses on the applications of GIS and remote sensing tools and techniques in social and ecological studies. Contributions can come from any fields of study, including, but not limited to:
- Land change science
- Sustainability science
- Landscape sustainability
- Landscape ecology
- Climate science
- Hydrological science
- Disaster risk and management
- Environmental health
- Urban studies
- Population studies Etc.
They can be in the form of a:
- Review (systematic review, conceptual review, etc.); or
- Perspective and Insight; or
- Case study (local, country, regional, or global)
- Research papers.
