People and Space correlate due to the fact that there exists strong interdependence between where people are found and what they do. Currently, most observed dynamics are in the cultural and natural domains of geography (Earth’s Surface). This has led to serious emerging environment challenges affecting economies and threatening many livelihoods on the planet. Changes taking place in the physical, technological and human environments are majorly driven by desire for better living. This has pushed the need for close analyses of causes, implications and distribution of short and long term challenges facing humanity in the 21st century and beyond. Application of spatial knowledge, reasoning, geospatial tools and skills are an upcoming and promising geographers niche to unravel the apparent complex interconnectedness and consequences of man-environment interaction. This particular special issue within the Journal of Urban and Regional Planning on Applied and Technical geography is designed as a peer-reviewed and open access sub journal unit component calling for researchers, scholars and practitioners with the domain of applied geospatial tools (GIS, Remote Sensing, GNSS/GPS, Virtual Globes) and geographic reasoning to share and communicate their experiences from using spatial skills or tools in form of original articles or related manuscripts . This special issue aim to publish refereed, well researched and innovative articles that show emerging knowledge and developments in the field of Applied and Technical Geography (GIS, Remote sensing, Spatial Modeling and Geostatistical analysis). Work submitted to this Issue should show the highest evidence of creativity and significance in towards realization of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Emphasizes is given to the use and application of geospatial information, tools and related problem solving skills in all areas of Human and Physical Geography.
