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.

These proceedings contain 44 papers that were presented at the SPIE conference Earth Resources and Environmental Remote Sensing/GIS Applications V (Conference 9245), formerly known under the title Remote Sensing for Environmental Monitoring, GIS Applications, and Geology. The conference took place in Amsterdam, Netherlands from 23 September to 25 September 2014. It was the fourteenth 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; 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., the 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 thank the on-site SPIE staff for their responsiveness and support. We are also grateful to our Program Committee for their help in the reviewing and session compilation process.
