About the Journal

The Journal of Smart Cities offers a multidisciplinary forum for publishing original research in the area of smart cities, bringing together scholars from the fields of engineering, urban planning, computer science, and information and knowledge management. The Journal of Smart Cities will serve as an international platform by sharing the latest research achievements on smart cities globally, offering a comprehensive access to researchers and the academic communities.

The Journal of Smart Cities adopts a wide perspective on Smart Cities, as the broad use of information and telecommunication technologies to support an innovative and sustainable urban infrastructure and environment; as participatory action within cities, engagement of citizens, and investment in ICT, Internet technologies and smart objects, which increase the intelligence and problem solving capacity of cities; as an urban laboratory, a Living Lab, and a generator of solutions for wicked problems of inclusion, sustainability, climate change, and global competitiveness.

Main objectives of the Journal of Smart Cities is to promote research for the improvement of all sub-systems of cities, including urban infrastructure, construction, mobility, energy saving and renewable energy, health and social care, safety in the public space, work and innovation, and make the city easily accessible, effective, efficient, and an attractive place to live. Information and communication technologies, the Internet, and embedded devices into the physical space of cities is a means to achieve these objectives, which are mainly realized through the empowerment of city institutions, organizations, citizens, and end-users to make better, more informed, and intelligent decisions.

The Journal of Smart Cities aims to publish articles in all areas of smart cities, by scholars and experts in the field, but primarily from the fields of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Urban Planning, and Transport, while relevant contributions about the development of smart city technologies from the fields of Electrical Engineering, Informatics, and Computer Science are also welcome.

As a basic surveying and mapping work, small uav has been widely used in large scale topographic mapping. According to the needs of production and construction, digital mapping methods and aerial photogrammetry are used to provide technical support for large scale topographic mapping in engineering construction surveying and mapping, urban planning and construction, cadastral surveying and other directions. In order to control the small uav in the terrain elevation information, mapping proportion accuracy and other aspects to get better improvement, the practice of small uav in large scale topographic map is deeply analyzed, in order to understand the practical application value of small uav in large scale topographic map.
