Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique 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.

Authors

Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four 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 Third International Conference on Remote Sensing and Geoinformation of Environment (RSCy2015), 16–19 March 2015, in Paphos, Cyprus. The conference focused on emerging issues in remote sensing and geo-information 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 RSCy2015 conference was organized by the Cyprus Remote Sensing Society, the Cyprus University of Technology, ESA (European Space Agency), 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, Hellas SAT, Frederick University, and Neapolis University.

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 twelve major themes: Agriculture, Atmospheric, Cultural Heritage, Environmental, Geology, GIS, Land Cover, LIDAR, Natural Hazards, Neural Networks, Real Estate, Remote Sensing and Water Sciences. The conference papers make important contributions to the open scientific literature on remote sensing and geoinformation. We thank the authors for sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm.

We are honored that so many experts from all over the world specializing in so many diverse areas of remote sensing and geoinformation attended this conference. This conference was an excellent opportunity for colleagues to share their knowledge, network, and collaborate together 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 geo-information.

Thank you to the conference 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.
