Call for papers: "High-spatial resolution remote sensing for
environmental monitoring and management" Special Issue of the Journal of
Spatial Science (www.mappingsciences.org.au/journal.htm
<blocked::http://www.mappingsciences.org.au/journal.htm> )
An increasing number of high-spatial resolution airborne and satellite
digital image sources are now available, and information extraction
approaches developed for these data are now being used across a wide
range of applications. To draw together the leading work in this area
and present an assessment of what is possible from these data sets and
mapping approaches, a special issue of the Journal of Spatial Science
will be published in June  2008. We are now seeking extended abstracts
for potential papers to appear in the special issue. The abstracts
should be < 400 words, and describe completed or soon to be completed
work which uses high-spatial resolution (pixels < 5.0 m), multi-spectral
airborne or satellite images for environmental mapping, monitoring and
management applications. Preference will be given to papers which focus
on monitoring and management.  Please include a potential list of
authors and nominate the corresponding author. Abstracts should be
submitted by October 12 2007 to s.phinn at uq.edu.au
<blocked::mailto:s.phinn at uq.edu.au>   
The Special Issue editors and remote sensing editors will review the
abstracts and then invite the most suited papers to be submitted in
full. The submitted papers must meet the structure, content and format
requirements of the journal
) and will be reviewed using the journal's standard process. The
time-table for the processes is outlined below.
