Remote Sensing and Image Interpretation (6TH 08 Edition)by Thomas M. Lillesand
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
From recent developments in digital image processing to the next generation of satellite systems, the sixth edition of this comprehensive text introduces students to the latest developments in the exciting field of remote sensing and image interpretation. The text examines the basics of analog image analysis while placing greater emphasis on digitally based systems and analysis techniques. The presentation is discipline neutral, so students in any field of study can gain a clear understanding of these systems and their virtually unlimited applications.
Remote sensing is the science and art of obtaining information about an object, area, or phenomenon through the analysis of data acquired by a device that is not in contact with the object, area, or phenomenon under investigation. Providing an exciting introduction to the field, this book covers the science of remote sensing from physical basis to sensors and applications. The new Sixth Editionnot only offers the latest information, but also has been revised to make the material more accessible.
