Remotely-sensed images of the Earth's surface provide a valuable source of information about the geographical distribution and properties of natural and cultural features. This fully revised and updated edition of a highly regarded textbook deals with the mechanics of processing remotely-senses images. Presented in an accessible manner, the book covers a wide range of image processing and pattern recognition techniques. Features include:
  • New topics on LiDAR data processing, SAR interferometry, the analysis of imaging spectrometer image sets and the use of the wavelet transform.
  • An accompanying CD-ROM with:
    • updated MIPS software, including modules for standard procedures such as image display, filtering, image transforms, graph plotting, import of data from a range of sensors.
    • A set of exercises, including data sets, illustrating the application of discussed methods using the MIPS software.
    • An extensive list of WWW resources including colour illustrations for easy download.

Paul Mather has been Professor of Geographical Information Science at The University of Nottingham, UK since 1988. BA (Cambridge), PhD (Nottingham). Main research interests: multivariate analysis of spatial data ("Computational Methods of Multivariate Analysis in Physical Geography," Chichester, John Wiley, 1976) and digital image processing applied to remotely sensed data, particularly algorithms for classification and pattern recognition ("Classification Methods for Remotely Sensed Data," with B. Tso, London, Taylor and Francis, 2001). Awarded OBE in the Queen's Jubilee Honours in 2002 for 'services to remote sensing and photogrammetry'. Recipient of The Remote Sensing Society's Gold Medal in 1996. Presented with the Back Award of the Royal Geographical Society for 'contributions to remote sensing' in 1992. Winner of the Dearing Award for "Outstanding contribution to the development of teaching and learning," The University of Nottingham, 2003. Invited speaker/lecturer at conferences/courses all over the world (e.g., Japan, Indonesia, India, South Africa, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Spain).
