Remote sensing and image interpretation
Wiley & Sons, Jan 27, 1994 - Technology & Engineering - 750 pages
Extensively illustrated, this updated edition provides a balance between classical visual image interpretation and digital image processing techniques. Features an effective look at the relationship between remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS). Covers such topics as image classification, accuracy assessment, NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS), hyperspectral scanners and new sensing systems including Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper, future SPOT, Almaz, ERS and Radar Sat. Also deals with the principles of acquiring and interpreting data collected by nonphotographic sensors.
