    Technological Advancements in Urban Remote Sensing

    The continued unprecedented development and growth in the urban population has placed an emphasis on many aspects, such as environmental impact, sustainable development, and public services. Currently, urban environments around the world are actively involved in obtaining solutions to improve inhabitants’ quality of life as well as enrich the use of city infrastructure and resources while reducing the operational costs to do so. Urban remote sensing plays a vital role in the ability to map, monitor and control infrastructure. Benefiting from data-driven, model-driven or hybrid approaches, remote sensing can contribute significantly to future urban planning and management. Variant sensors mounted on mobile, airborne, and satellite platforms, along with devices with IoT capabilities, are required for effective coordination and control of urban infrastructure.

    Urban remote sensing had its origins decades ago. However, the changes in technological advancements in sensors and methods, along with a considerable amount of data provided on a daily basis, give rise to the opportunity to investigate novel avenues of research in this area. Technological advancements in this field include improvements in imaging sensors as well as data processing methods, including learning systems (artificial intelligence and machine learning).

    This updated collection of articles will drive the next generation of urban remote sensing. Submissions on the following sub-topics are encouraged:

    • Advances in remote sensor Big Data analytics for urban environments and Smart Cities
    • Frontiers in security, privacy, and trust in sensor-based urban environments and IoT
    • Machine Learning and AI Techniques in urban Remote Sensing
    • Change detection in urban areas using multi-sensor solutions
    • 3D modelling of urban infrastructure and urban Digital Twins
    • Multi-modal mapping systems and their applications in urban areas
    • Application of imagery data from novel Remote Sensing sensors or platforms for urban land information extraction

    NFS Webinar - Dr. Thomas Scott: Bell Aircraft and the Transformation of the American South

    July 21, 2022 at 7:00PM Eastern


    In early 1942 the War Department took over the airport for an Army airfield in Cobb County, Georgia and leased part of the site to Bell Aircraft to manufacture Boeing B-29 Superfortress bombers, at the time the most complex and expensive aircraft in the world. Eventually Bell produced more than 660 of these marvelous machines with a workforce mainly of southerners who had never been inside any factory, let alone a modern aircraft plant. Before World War II Cobb County was typical of most of the South in being plagued by the triple ills of segregation, one-party rule, and poverty. The average resident lived on a tenant farm or worked in a small, low-wage industry. The war changed things dramatically and began to move Cobb into the national mainstream. No person or business was more important in this transformation than Larry Bell and the Bell Aircraft Corporation of Buffalo, New York.

    Thomas Scott is Professor Emeritus of History and Campus Historian at Kennesaw State University, Georgia, teaching there from 1968 until his retirement in 2011. His specialties are Georgia history and oral history, and he has also taught seminars and graduate classes on local history, the history of suburban America, and the history of American higher education. Tom is the author of three books and has headed an oral history project at KSU since 1978. Along with students and colleagues, he has conducted more than 800 interviews, mainly with residents of Cobb County and environs and faculty and trustees of KSU, including a subseries was with managers and workers at the Bell Aircraft and Lockheed plants in Marietta.
