Aims & Scope

ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (P&RS) is the official journal of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS). The journal is to provide a channel of communication for scientists and professionals in all countries working in the many disciplines employing photogrammetry, remote sensing, spatial information systems, computer vision, and other related fields. The Journal is designed to serve as a source reference and archive of advancements in these disciplines.

The P&RS objective is to publish high quality, peer-reviewed, preferably previously unpublished papers of a scientific/research, technological development or application/practical nature. P&RS will publish papers, including those based on ISPRS meeting presentations, which are regarded as significant contributions in the above-mentioned fields. We especially encourage papers: of broad scientific interest; on innovative applications, particularly in new fields; of an interdisciplinary nature; on topics that have not been dealt with (or to a small degree) by P&RS or related journals; and on topics related to new possible scientific/professional directions. Preferably, theoretical papers should include applications, and papers dealing with systems and applications should include theoretical background.

The scope of the journal is extensive and covers sensors, theory and algorithms, systems, experiments, developments and applications.

Topics include:
• Sensor characterisation
• Calibration and standardisation
• Preprocessing and archiving of image data
• Sensors and platforms for topographic surveys
• Sensors for geosphere-biosphere studies
• Advanced platforms and sensors
• Real-time mapping technologies
• Spatial data handling technologies
• Systems for SAR processing
• Digital photogrammetric systems
• Practical issues in digital mapping
• Integration of image analysis and GIS/cartographic systems
• Integrated sensor calibration and orientation
• Feature extraction and grouping
• Surface and object reconstruction
• Object and scene modelling and interpretation
• Theory and algorithms for SAR
• GIS data modelling, representation and structures
• Database systems
• DTMs and orthoimages
• 3-D urban GIS
• Temporal aspects and data revision
• Mapping from high resolution imagery
• Global databases and environmental monitoring
• Close-range imaging and metrology
• Integration of photogrammetric systems with CAD/CAM
• Visualisation, animation and virtual reality
• Medical image analysis
• Architectural & archaeological photogrammetry
• Image sequence analysis
• Physical measurements and spectral signatures
• Applications for sustainable development
• Thematic applications and image classification
• Global monitoring
• Resource and environmental modelling using radar
• Nonrenewable resources and geotechnical applications
• Education, tutorials and spatial data sharing.

Submitted articles may be:

  • Papers (detailed discussions involving new research, technological developments or applications)
  • Review Papers (extensive state-of-the-art surveys of established or emerging topics or application areas)
  • Tutorial Papers (on new topics, sufficiently broad themes, at an introductory to intermediate level and easy to understand, with main aim education and training)
  • Contributions for special Journal columns (letters to the Editor about the journal or to authors commenting on previously published papers; new useful ideas and brief pertinent comments of a technical nature; editorials, mainly after an invitation by the Editorial Advisory Board)

NOTE: All articles, except correspondence, will be reviewed and should be of high scientific level.
P&RS issues may be devoted to specific scientific topics of high or increasing importance (Theme Issues), especially in relation to one or more ISPRS Working Groups, as well as to special events, geographic regions, professional activities etc. (Special Issues). The number and topics of Theme and Special Issues will be such, that the P&RS still remains of interest to the majority of its subscribers.
