The ISRSE symposium is affiliated with the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS). This affiliation enables a special edition of the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing featuring selected contributions to the 36th ISRSE conference. Papers will be fully peer reviewed. This will raise the scientific impact of contributions to the 36th ISRSE significantly. Prof John Trinder, Emeritus University of New South Wales and Prof Björn Waske, Freie Universität Berlin, will be the chief editors of this.

More information on this and on the selection of papers will follow soon.
