Synopses & Reviews
Remote Sensing Digital Image Analysis provides the non-specialist with an introduction to quantitative evaluation of satellite and aircraft derived remotely retrieved data. Since the first edition of the book there have been significant developments in the algorithms used for the processing and analysis of remote sensing imagery; nevertheless many of the fundamentals have substantially remained the same.
Now in an updated edition that adds new and revised material, this book offers a comprehensive introduction to quantitative evaluation of satellite and aircraft derived remotely retrieved data. Each chapter includes practice problems.
