"This excellent textbook provides a thorough grounding in the uses and types of remote sensing techniques employed for analyzing population, energy use, and other aspects of the urban environment." (Book News, 1 August 2011)
Urban Remote Sensing: Monitoring, Synthesis and Modeling in the Urban Environmentby Xiaojun Yang
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Urban Remote Sensing is designed for upper level undergraduates, graduates, researchers and practitioners, and has a clear focus on the development of remote sensing technology for monitoring, synthesis and modeling in the urban environment. It covers four major areas: the use of high-resolution satellite imagery or alternative sources of image date (such as high-resolution SAR and LIDAR) for urban feature extraction; the development of improved image processing algorithms and techniques for deriving accurate and consistent information on urban attributes from remote sensor data; the development of analytical techniques and methods for deriving indicators of socioeconomic and environmental conditions that prevail within urban landscape; and the development of remote sensing and spatial analytical techniques for urban growth simulation and predictive modeling.
