## Mathematics in remote sensing: based on the proceedings of a conference organized by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications on Mathematics and its Applications in Remote Sensing held at Danbury, Essex, in May 1986This volume presents an up-to-date survey of the mathematical techniques of use in the generation of data and extraction of information from satellite observation. It presents a state-of-the-art account of what is possible with today's mathematical tools and offers a perspective on the capabilities of future remote sensing systems. |
