Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print and on CD-ROM. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique, consistent, permanent citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of the first 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, print, and electronic versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system in which:

  • The first four 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. The complete citation is used on the first page, and an abbreviated version on subsequent pages. Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit CID Number.

Introduction

Following the success of the First International Conference on Remote Sensing and Geoinformation of Environment, RSCy2013 in Paphos, Cyprus that took place 8–10 April 2013, the Cyprus Remote Sensing Society and the Cyprus University of Technology organized the Second International Conference on Remote Sensing and Geoinformation of Environment, RSCy2014. The organizing committee, scientific committee, and editors would like to thank the authors and participants who attended the Second International Conference on Remote Sensing and Geoinformation of Environment in Paphos, Cyprus, 7–10 April 2014.

The conference focused on emerging issues in remote sensing and geoinformation of environment. It was attended by professionals from over 30 countries. The keynote speakers and diverse technical program encouraged the exchange of ideas and provided the foundation for future collaboration and innovation. The conference was enhanced by the inclusion of two workshops on ERDAS and LiDAR processing. The RSCy2014 Conference was organized by the Cyprus Remote Sensing Society, Cyprus University of Technology, ESA (European Space Agency), ETEK (Cyprus Scientific and Technical Chamber), Ministry of Defense, Department of Meteorology of the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment, Department of Electronic Communications of the Ministry of Communications and Works, Frederick University, Neapolis University and COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology).

The following papers, reviewed for presentation and accepted for publication by the scientific committee, represent continued advancements in the field of remote sensing and geo-information. The program, which included both oral and poster presentations, was organized around the following major themes: Agriculture, Atmospheric, Archaeology-Cultural Heritage, Environmental Applications, Forests-Fires, Geology, GIS, Land Cover and Land Use, LIDAR, Remote Sensing, Seismic, and Water Sciences. The abstracts and subsequent papers make important contributions to the open scientific literature on remote sensing and geo-information. We thank the authors for sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm.

We would like to especially thank the Conference chairs who provided invaluable assistance during the Conference. Thanks are also due to the staff at SPIE for following the proceedings through the publication process.
