Image registration employs digital image processing in order to bring two or more digital images into precise alignment for analysis and comparison. Accurate registration algorithms are essential for creating mosaics of satellite images and tracking changes on the planet's surface over time. Bringing together invited contributions from thirty-six distinguished researchers, the book presents a detailed overview of current research and practice in the application of image registration to remote sensing imagery. Chapters cover the problem definition, theoretical issues in accuracy and efficiency, fundamental algorithms, and real-world case studies of image registration software applied to imagery from operational satellite systems. This book provides a comprehensive and practical overview for Earth and space scientists, presents image processing researchers with a summary of current research, and can be used for specialised graduate courses.

• The only book to present a systematic overview of automatic image registration as applied to Earth remote sensing imagery, covering algorithms, applications and theoretical issues on the topic • Includes contributions from thirty-six distinguished researchers in a carefully orchestrated structure to provide a complete snapshot of current research in image registration for Earth remote sensing • Treats each topic at various levels of complexity and mathematical maturity so the material is accessible to a broad range of experts, from Earth, planetary and space scientists to imaging practitioners and researchers

'The book explains the main image-registration issues involved in remote sensing in a comprehensive, convincing, and well-written manner. The coverage of the topic is excellent, and experimental examples with simulated and real data are also shown in most chapters. The reading is accessible to both specialists and nonspecialists, including students. Stimulating discussions on scientific and applicative challenges, possible solution strategies, and the accuracy, optimality, and efficiency of such strategies can be found throughout the book and make it an outstanding treatise that can be extremely interesting to a wide audience.' IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society Newsletter

'This is an important reference book for all remote-sensing professionals as well as for advanced level geophysical data processing personnel in academia and in industry.' Wooil M. Moon, The Leading Edge
