1 Review
The book provides an exhaustive coverage of optical, thermal, and microwave remote sensing, global navigation satellite systems (e.g., GPS), digital photogrammetry, and visual image analysis. The main emphasis is on the basic concepts of remote sensing and GIS but topics such as digital image processing, spatial and attribute data model, geospatial analysis, and planning, implementation, and management of GIS have also been discussed in detail.

Owing to its lucid style and presentation of advanced topics, such as ground truth data, metadata concepts, latest developments and modern trends of GIS and GNSS, makes this book suitable as a reference for postgraduate students and practicing professionals from the Geomatics community.

I studied under Mr. B. Bhatta. He is one of the Best teacher I found in my life. His book Remote Sensing and GIS is wonderful. Its a book by which I understand the GIS, a new application very easily and deeply. Now I am in a good position in my career because of GIS and because of my teachers in Jadavpur University.
I wish best of luck to Mr. B. Bhatta in his life.
