Remote sensing excels as a means to measure, model, map, and monitor large-scale patterns of land cover change. With the steady deployment of satellite remote sensing platforms in recent decades, scientists now have access to a constellation of space-borne sensors. But with this increase in satellite imagery comes a specific challenge for the remote sensing community to efficiently process data streams from sensors with different spatial, spectral, temporal, and radiometric characteristics. This paper session elucidates automated approaches to the production of temporally consistent land cover time series that adapt to atmospheric, radiometric, and phenological inconsistencies among multi-temporal satellite images. Potential topics range from theory and algorithms to products and applications of automated time series mapping.
