dc.description.abstract This special issue features a collection of ten contributions focusing on urban remote sensing applications. This special issue reflects the thematic diversity and variety of urban remote sensing applications and underlines the importance of this research field. Based on the 5th EARSeL Joint Workshop “Urban Remote Sensing – Challenges & Solutions” held in Bochum, Germany in 2018 the participants were invited to contribute to this special issue. The EARSeL Joint Workshop is a new format that was first initiated in 2006 in Berlin, Germany. Further EARSeL Joint Workshops followed in 2008 in Bochum, Germany, 2010 in Ghent, Belgium, 2012 in Mykonos, Greece and 2014 in Warsaw, Poland. The composition of the participating EARSeL Special Interest Groups varied from workshop to workshop. For 2018 the EARSeL Special Interest Groups Urban Remote Sensing, 3D Remote Sensing, Developing Countries and Radar Remote Sensing agreed to organize this workshop together. High resolution data are a valuable source for urban and suburban areas and can deliver information in high geometric and semantic quality for various cities and urban agglomerations around the world. Due to accelerating urban sprawl and increasing urban population more and more topics arise where remote sensing is able to support planning and other public duties. It also helps to analyse unplanned developments, investigate climate change drivers and can help in risk mitigation plans. For these topics satellite images with very high resolution (VHR) are of great importance. Since 1999 with the first commercial VHR satellites more and more sensor systems came into orbit and offer a wide variety of different image options. Information extraction can be done in 2D and also in 3D. Parallel to the VHR imagery one also observes studies over large areas with rather coarse pixel sizes. The selection of imagery obviously is connected to the scale of the problem under investigation. This is a traditional geographic approach to select the needed data according to the needed scale. eng
