Computer Processing of Remotely-Sensed Images: An Introduction / Edition 3by Paul M. Mather
Pub. Date: 04/23/2004
The successful application of remote sensing techniques requires knowledge and skills drawn from several scientific disciplines. Specialists in specific areas of the field require a broad range of expertise, encompassing physics and optics, mathematics, statistics and digital computers. Treats the specialized area of digital image processing of remotely-sensed data in relation to these and other fields, providing a thorough understanding of its functions, uses and capabilities. The opening section discusses the physical principles of remote sensing, followed by a description of satellite platforms currently in use as well those under development. Also examines the characteristics of digital computers as they relate to the processing of remotely-sensed image data. Examines particular topics within the general field of processing remotely-sensed data and their application to a range of problems in the environmental and earth sciences.
