Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a seven-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • The first five digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.


Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the seven-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first five digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

This proceedings volume contains 43 papers presented at the SPIE Conference on Earth Resources and Environmental Remote Sensing/GIS Applications, formerly known under the title ‘Remote Sensing for Environmental Monitoring, GIS Applications, and Geology.’ The conference took place 27–29 September 2016 in Edinburgh, United Kingdom, and was the sixteenth conference with this topic after its inauguration in Toulouse, France, in 2001.

The conference sessions with presented papers and interactive posters were grouped into the following themes: Infrastructures and Urban Areas, Processing Methodologies, Hazard Mitigation Geologic Applications, Sensors and Platforms, Environmental Monitoring Concepts and Processing Methodologies. Lively discussions often continued into the coffee breaks. Although the session topics seemed rather diverse, there was a common thread to many papers, i.e., application of remotely sensed data for the protection of our environment, the integration with geographic information systems (GIS) and change detection. There was strong support from the audience to continue these themes for future conferences.

The paper submission and review process were again perfectly organized by the SPIE staff. We like to thank the SPIE staff on-site for their responsiveness and support. We are also grateful to our program committee for their help in the reviewing and session compilation process.
