List of remote sensing journals

Giorgos Mountrakis has a very interesting list of RS and GIS journals on his website
He ranks by Impact factor and not surprisingly RSof Environment comes top, here are the top five from his list

|3.943 # 5.515 | 3.951 # 4.605 | Remote Sensing of Environment
|3.157 # 3.873 | 2.470 # 2.995 | IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing
|2.293 # 3.694 | 2.158 # 2.886 | ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing
|1.947 # – | 1.557 # 2.039 | Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation
|1.846 # 2.347 | 0.926 # 1.566 | Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing

A couple he misses include the Journal of the Indian remote sensing society, which has current paper -thats Irish by cultural association:
“Utility of Hyperspectral Data for Potato Late Blight Disease Detection ”
Shibendu Shankar Ray, Namrata Jain, R. K. Arora, S. Chavan and Sushma Panigrahy

and the Boletim de Ciências Geodésicas, whilst mostly in portuguese does have a leat one english language paper per issue and has strong focus on forestry and active sensing

Irish paper watch

New paper from Maynooth

Kordi M. and Brandt S.A.
Effects of increasing fuzziness on analytic hierarchy process for spatial multicriteria decision analysis.
Computers, Environment and Urban Systems. In press

More a geospatial paper looking at fuzziness in multicriteria decsion analysis, one can see an application within a rule baseed imafge classifcation system and points, I think, toward useful work in sensitivity to “fuzziness” and initialisng criteria in Object classifcation systems

UCC confernece GLOBWave

This User Meeting is the second one of the project and it will be hosted at the National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI) in Cork on the 5-6th October 2011. The event is planned to span the whole day of the 5th and the morning of the 6th.

The meeting will allow participants to explain how the GlobWave data is being used in a series of lectures and posters,as well as the project team outlining the latest developments.

There is no cost for registration and, in addition to lots of exciting talks, we are also able to offer tours of the NMCI facilities (including a Marine Simulator and Wave Tank) and a free evening networking event with dinner and drinks.

UK lecturship DEADLINE 29 August!

TheInstituteofGeographyand Earth Sciences wishes to appoint a promising scientist with a growing reputation and strong track record to contribute to research and teaching in the field of Remote Sensing and GIS, working within the Quaternary and Recent Environmental Change Research Group.
