Advancing horizons for land cover services entering the big data era

European Journal of Remote Sensing: an Open Access journal

This Special Issue features research that was presented during the 2nd workshop “Advancing horizons for land cover services entering the big data era”, held in Prague (Czech Republic) in 2016. The workshop was a joint effort from EARSeL’s Special Interest Group on Land Use & Land Cover and NASA’s Land-Cover and Land-Use Change Science Team, under the theme ‘questions towards and beyond the 2020 emerging challenges’.

The guest editors, Garik Gutman, Ioannis Manakos, Eva Stefanova and Premysl Stych, are delighted to share nine exciting papers that have been published in a Special Issue on Advancing horizons for land cover services entering the big data era. Environment, Food security, Energy, Health and Security require continuous, reliable and cost effective monitoring of the Earth’s surface and its resources. Papers in this Special Issue deal with new frontiers in Earth Observation, which could help to counterbalance for pressures and demands from a changing climate set by contemporary and expected developments in the geo-sphere and bio-sphere.
