An authoritative and state-of-the-art book bringing together some of the most recent developments in remote sensing and GIS analysis with a particular emphasis on mathematical techniques and their applications.

With contributions from academia, industry and research institutes, all with a high standing, this book covers a range of techniques including: fuzzy classification, artificial neural networks, geostatistical techniques (such as kriging, cokriging, stochastic simulation and regularization, texture classification, fractals, per-parcel classification, raster and vector data integration and process modelling. The range of applications includes land cover and land use mapping, cloud tracking, snow cover mapping and air temperature monitoring, topographic mapping, geological classification and soil erosion modelling.

This book will be valuable to both researchers and advanced students of remote sensing and GIS. It contains several new approaches, recent developments, and novel applications of existing techniques. Most chapters report the results of experiment and investigation. Some chapters form broad reviews of recent developments in the field. In all cases, the mathematical basis is fully explained.
