    Your benefits:
    • Novel fields of application of geodesy to engineering and other natural sciences
    • Rapid developments that have influenced both sensors / instrumentation and methodology
    • Cutting-edge surveying and mapping techniques, processing algorithms and analytical tools
    • Rigorous peer-review

    Aims and Scope

    The Journal of Applied Geodesy (JAG) is a forum for peer-reviewed research articles in the area of application of geodesy to engineering and other natural sciences. It publishes innovative contributions on sensor developments, multi-sensor systems and sensor data fusion focusing on the capture of georeferenced data. Hence topics related to navigation and mobile mapping will also be covered by JAG. The scope includes optical and microwave 3-D measurement techniques and other sensors for geotechnical measurements. Furthermore, applied geodesy articles from all areas of satellite-based geodetic networks, deformation measurements, deformation analysis, modelling of local geodynamic processes and the development of intelligent alert systems, measurement techniques for large construction sites and mechanical engineering will be presented. With increased use of the tools of Artificial Intelligence for sensor control, sensor fusion and data analysis, manuscripts on these topics with a strong emphasis on applied geodesy will also be published.
