About the Authors
  • This volume describes how to process and interpret spectral images using physical models to bridge the gap between the engineering and theoretical sides of remote-sensing and the outdoors world. Examples are drawn from a variety of landscapes and interpretations are tested against the reality seen on the ground. The reader is led through analysis of real images (using figures and explanations) and examples are chosen to illustrate important aspects of the analytic framework. The book is supplemented by a web-site hosting digital color versions of figures in the book as well as ancillary images (www.cambridge.org/9780521662214).

    • Presents a coherent view of practical remote sensing, leading from imaging and field work to the generation of useful thematic maps
    • Explains how to apply physical models to help interpret spectral images
    • Supplemented by a website hosting digital colour versions of figures in the book, as well as additional colour figures
