A large diversity of remote sensing training for ecology and conservation exists and such trainings are increasingly offered. All remote sensing trainings have different approaches, use different data sets and have different audience. However, their results, lesson-learnt and approaches are rarely reported. Therefore there is a need to review and discuss the past and future of spatial training in ecology and conservation. In this special issue a forum for a wide range of articles is offered such as reviews, policy forum and interdisciplinary perspectives on remote sensing training for ecological and conservation research and authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts of past activities or perspectives on needed developments.
