Overview

Completely up-to-date coverage, from the basics to the latest remote sensing technologies

Extensively revised to address today’s technological advances, Aerial Photography and Image Interpretation offers a thorough survey of the technology, techniques, processes, and methods used to create and interpret aerial photographs, as well as other forms of remote sensing. This Second Edition takes remote sensing beyond its traditional use in forestry and broadens its applicability to a variety of other disciplines, including resource management, land-use planning, archeology, and many others.

Every chapter is up to date with the most current information on all aspects of remote sensing, from fundamental terms and processes to cutting-edge material on such topics as orthophotography (including digital), soft copy photogrammetry, and digital image capture and interpretation. A basic introduction is also given to nonphotographic and space-based imaging platforms and sensors, including Landsat, lidar, thermal, and multispectral.

New chapters cover GPS, GIS, small format aerial photography, statistical analysis and thematic mapping errors, active remote sensors, and environmental monitoring (which is addressed in a full chapter of applied examples).

Written in a straightforward style supplemented with hundreds of photographs and illustrations, Aerial Photography and Image Interpretation, Second Edition is the most in-depth resource for undergraduate students and professionals in such fields as forestry, geography, environmental science, archeology, resource management, surveying, civil and environmental engineering, natural resources, and agriculture.
