Overview

This comprehensive introductory text presents an up-to-date overview of the most widely used forms of remote sensing imagery and their applications in plant sciences, hydrology, earth sciences, and land use analysis. Completely revised and updated, the second edition includes up-to-date coverage of the recently declassified CORONA imagery and other topics of current significance, and new chapters on hyperspectral remote sensing and global remote sensing. In addition, there is now a chapter on digital remote sensing featuring an essential discussion of the use of the Internet in remote sensing and including a list of relevant World Wide Web addresses. Ideal for both undergraduate and graduate use, the volume is designed to enable instructors to select and alter the sequence of chapters to meet the requirements of their courses.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Introduction to Remote Sensing, 2nd Edition, covers image acquisition, analysis, and applications at a level suitable for the upper level undergraduate student. With some additional material added by the instructor, it can also serve as the basis for a graduate level course. Included in the book are numerous sources of remote sensing data (phone numbers, Internet addresses, and world wide web addresses).

"This textbook provides an excellent foundation in the physics of remote sensing and accomplishes this without resorting to advanced mathematics, making this book especially useful in an introductory courses.

"The author has an excellent writing styles and the text is very easy to read. His wide experience in the diverse topics involved in remote sending is very evident in his excellent summary of the status of applied remote sensing in each discipline of the Earth sciences. This textbook is unique in that it focuses on analysis and applications, covering all the earth sciences (plant sciences, geosciences, hydrologic sciences, land use, and global biogeochemical processes). It also includes several topics not usually found in remote sensing textbooks: preprocessing, image classification, field data, accuracy assessment, and timely topics such as hyperspectral remote sensing, and geographic information systems (GIS)." --David E. Pitts, D.Engr, Adjunct Professor, Natural and Applied Sciences, University of Houston-Clear Lake

"The much-anticipated second edition of James Campbell's text Introduction to Remote Sensing is, by every measure, a winner. Instructors will find the book to be comprehensive, well illustrated, and up-to-date. Students will find it good reading, and will profit from the review questions provided at the end of every chapter, as well as the real-world case studies (e.g., the Corn Blight Watch) and exercises (e.g. taking your own infrared and stereo photographs) scattered throughout the volume. Campbell provides an excellent overview of the field of remote sensing, covering the fundamentals of image acquisition and data analysis, and giving particular attention to image interpretation and analysis strategies. Important topics such as image resolution, accuracy assessment, collection and use of field data, and remote sensing/GIS interrelationships are each treated in an entire chapter. There is even a brief introduction to the use of the Internet and the World Wide Web in remote sensing. The book concludes with a series of exceptionally well-conceived and well-presented chapters on applications of remote sensing in land use mapping, and in the geological, hydrological, and biological sciences. Introduction to Remote Sensing is an outstanding text and a significant contribution to the teaching of remote sensing. Highly recommended!" --James W. Merchant, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Associate Director, Center for Advanced Land Management Information Technologies, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

FEEDBACK FROM INSTRUCTOR SURVEY:

"I have, over the years, used a number of different texts on remote sensing, including a more rigorous engineering-based text. Campbell's book is the one I like the best....I like his writing style and feel that the book is generally easy to read and follow."

"I have used and will continue to use Campbell's book. I like it--it presents materials that I need to have for my courses."

"...clearly written and well organized." --D. J. Campagna, College of William and Mary. Choice
