Editorial Reviews

International Journal of Remote Sensing
It remains an excellent book and to have it updated is very valuable...It is nice to see a good book being updated.
**** The second edition (1987) is cited in BCL3. An introduction to remote sensing for upper division students studying earth resource management. This revised and updated edition expands the discussion of such topics as photointerpretation strategies, hyperspectral scanning, classification accuracy assessment, and new satellite systems. It also greatly increases the emphasis on the intimate two-way relationship between remote sensing and GIS. There are many new line drawings and photographic illustrations, and over half of the (24) color plates are new. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
From the Publisher
"As a reference book for those using remote sensing, it is invaluable and I have yet to find a book that can teach me more." (Journal Of Sedimentary Research, June 2007)
