Remote Sensing and Image Interpretation

Front Cover
This straightforward introduction to remote sensing provides comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the subject for students, irrespective of their disciplines of study or the academic department in which remote sensing is taught. All the classical'' elements of aerial photographic interpretation and photogrammetry are described, but equal emphasis is placed on non-photographic sensing systems and the analysis of data from these systems using digital image processing procedures. Includes coverage of image restoration, enhancement, classification, and data merging, and new sensor systems such as the Large Format Camera, solid-state linear arrays, the Shuttle Imaging radar systems, the Landsat Thematic Mapper, the SPOT satellite system, and the NOAA Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer. Also covers imaging spectrometry and lidar systems. Contains extensive illustrations.
