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.

Authors

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.

Introduction

The organizing committee, scientific committee, and editors would like to thank the authors and participants who attended the Fifth International Conference on Remote Sensing and Geoinformation of Environment in Paphos, Cyprus, which took place 20–23 March 2017. The conference focused on emerging issues in remote sensing and geoinformation of environment. The keynote speakers and thought-provoking technical program encouraged the exchange of ideas and provided the foundation for future collaboration and innovation. The RSCy2017 was organized by the Cyprus Remote Sensing Society, in cooperation with, ESA (European Space Agency), NASA, ETEK (Cyprus Scientific and Technical Chamber), the Department of Meteorology, the Department of Electronic Communications of the Ministry of Communications and Works, GEO (Group on Earth Observations), DLR (German Aerospace Center), the Agricultural Research Institute, Copernicus, HellasGIS, and Neapolis University. RSCy2017 was supported by the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation, Copernicus, the Copernicus Relays network and the Copernicus Academic network, as well as the CLIMA, PROTHEGO and ATHENA project.

The papers in this volume, reviewed for presentation and accepted for publication by the scientific committee, represent continued advancements in the field of remote sensing and geoinformation. The program, which included both oral and poster presentations, was organized around twelve major themes: Agriculture, Atmospheric, Coastal Waters-Ocean-Large Water Regions, Remote Sensing for Cultural Heritage, Forests, Geology, GIS, Natural Hazards and Disaster Response, Remote Sensing, Surveillance and Urban Environment. The abstracts and subsequent papers make important contributions to the open scientific literature on remote sensing and geoinformation. We thank the authors for sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm. Experts from over 35 countries are represented in the papers that were presented. As well, the conference was enhanced by the inclusion of the workshops, “Defense and Security Applications,” “Exploitation of Copernicus data at ERDAS IMAGINE,” “Remote Sensing for Cultural Heritage Beyond Europe,” under the auspices of the ATHENA project; and “Enjoyment of Cultural Heritage By Means of New and Old Media,” which was developed within the frame of the Action Programme of the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change.

We are honored that so many experts from all over the world specializing in so many diverse areas of remote sensing and geoinformation are attending this conference. RSCy2017 was an excellent opportunity for colleagues to share their knowledge, network and collaborate on future research. We encourage you to take this opportunity to learn about the latest, most state-of-the-art findings and applications in the field of remote sensing and geoinformation.

Thank you to the scientific committee, keynote speakers, and session chairs, who provided invaluable assistance during the conference. Thank you as well to the staff at SPIE for following the proceedings through the publication process. We also thank our sponsors for their support.
