Remote Sensing and GIS (Geographical Information System) have been the major technologies for the Earth observations. It has been utilized to gather and to display the observed information of planet Earth's physical, chemical and biological systems. In recent years, the development of novel analytical techniques, the availability of open remote sensing data, and data acquisition tools have allowed the multi-scaled spatial, spectral, and temporal contents of remotely sensed imageries to be more fully exploited; namely, to broadly quantify the Earth’s surface characteristics.

The International Conference on Earth Observations and Societal Impacts (ICEO&SI) was initiated by the Taiwan Groups on Earth Observations (TGEO) in 2010; since then, the conference has become an annual event as well as a platform for peoples, who are interested in the sustainable development of the earth, to exchange and to share the knowledge and experiences. The essential scope of works for the conference was set for solution finding such that to respond on the threats that humans are currently facing and to provide the solutions to the policy makers for further actions.

Ten contemporary critical importance issues; i.e., Natural Disasters, Health, Energy, Climate Changes, Water Resources, Meteorology, Ecosystems, Agriculture, Biodiversity, and related Industries, which have been the great concerns of the people, governments, private sectors, and the groups on earth observations; mainly to the sustainability of environment and societal welfare of global concerns.

Purposes of the proposed special issue were set forth to bring up discussions concerning the advancement of techniques/approaches in order to support the knowledge on the data acquisition for Earth observations as well as their corresponding applications. Subjects of the special issue will be covering, but not limited to:

(a) The remote sensing of all kinds; including UAV data acquisitions and ground-based scannings.

(b) Observations of the Earth biosphere; including health, ecosystem, agriculture, and biodiversity.

(c) The terrestrial observations; i.e., natural disasters, and their mitigation and remedial actions.

(d) The atmospheric studies; including climate changes, meteorology and oceanology.

(e) The natural resources monitoring; such as food products, energy and water resources.
