|The book provides the non-specialist with an introduction to quantitative evaluation of satellite and aircraft derived remotely retrieved data. Each chapter covers the pros and cons of digital remotely sensed data, without detailed mathematical treatment of computer based algorithms, but in a manner conductive to an understanding of their capabilities and limitations. Problems conclude each chapter. This third edition of a well-established introductory texts presents the complete spectrum of acquisition, analysis and processing of remotely sensed data. The revisions reflect the developments in satellite and sensor programs as well as new processing techniques. A new chapter addresses hyperspectral image processing, and chapter twelve has been completely recast to focus it on data fusion.
