TecnoLógicas is an open access scientific journal, edited by the Instituto Tecnológico Metropolitano of Medellin, created to promote the dissemination of knowledge that leads to improving academic training and professional practice in the fields of engineering and applied technology. The journal TecnoLógicas is a peer-reviewed publication, which uses a double-blind peer review system; publishes research and review articles, original and relevant in the area. It is indexed in SciELO Citation Index® (Thomson Reuters Web of Science), Publindex, SciELO Colombia, Fuente Académica Premier™ (EBSCO), Index Copernicus, Redalyc, Dialnet, REDIB, Periódica, DOAJ, DRJI, Latindex, Actualidad Iberoamerica and the Digital Library by OEI. High-quality contributions are welcome on a permanent basis.

The Editorial Board of Revista TecnoLógicas has the pleasure of inviting the scientific community to publish in the thematic dossier Algorithms, Technologies and Applications of Multispectral and Hyperspectral Remote Sensing of the Earth that will be included in the next edition (May 2019).

The objective of this dossier is to demonstrate the capabilities of multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing in the optical region (0.3 - 14 μm) for earth system science applications, to provide insight about the state of the art of algorithms and techniques to extract useful information from spectral data, and to demonstrate the value of fusing spectral imagery with other remote sensing modalities.

 This dossier aims at attracting contributions addressing research papers including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Spectral and spatial feature selection
  • Target and anomaly detection
  • Spectral, spatial and combined (spatial and spectral) image processing
  • Subpixel spectral analysis and unmixing
  • Change detection and temporal analysis
  • Sensor fusion
  • Processing and analysis of imagery from unmanned airborne system
  • Processing and analysis of imagery from space-borne system
  • Processing of spectral imagery using machine learning techniques
  • Atmospheric characterization and correction techniques 
  • Earth science and environmental applications
  • Agriculture

The interested contributors are highly encouraged to register and submit their manuscripts/papers through the page http://tecnologicas.itm.edu.co. Please indicate in the Comments for the Editor that the contribution is for the Algorithms, Technologies and Applications of Multispectral and Hyperspectral Remote Sensing of the Earth dossier.

The journal publishes innovative contributions to maintain the high quality of publications and the editorial board reserves the right to reject papers without sending them out for review.

Important dates:

Submission deadline:  : February 15, 2019

Editorial decision deadline: March 29, 2019

Publication: May 2019

Only submissions in the English language will be accepted. In order to expedite the publishing of papers in this dossier (May 2019-edition), the Editorial Board highly recommends you have the documents revised for English correctness before submission. Each paper published in Revista TecnoLógicas is assigned a DOI number, which appears beneath the author's affiliation in the published paper.
