From recent developments in digital image processing to the next generation of satellite systems, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of remote sensing and image interpretation. This book is discipline neutral, so readers in any field of study can gain a clear understanding of these systems and their virtually unlimited applications. The authors underscore close interactions among the related areas of remote sensing, GIS, GPS, digital image processing, and environmental modeling. Appendices include material on sources of remote sensing data and information, remote sensing periodicals, online glossaries, and online tutorials.
