About this book

Recent developments in remote sensing technology have greatly extended the range of data available to those studying the Earth from a distance. A remote sensing analyst can now choose from a wide range of spatial, spectral, temporal and radiometric scales to address a particular question. However, this increased choice places additional onus on the analyst to be aware of a much broader range of topics and issues. The SAGE Handbook of Remote Sensing will provide exactly that resource.

A magnificent achievement. A who's who of contemporary remote sensing have produced an engaging, wide-ranging and scholarly review of the field in just one volume Professor Paul Curran Vice-Chancellor, Bournemouth University


This volume covers all the main fields of remote sensing in a very comprehendible manner. Most of the chapters are presented in a semi-historic account that shows the development of the field or in methods of data processing. The discussion is accompanied by high-quality color images and graphs in order to provide as full coverage of the topics as possible. The structure of the book is organized very systematically into sections, sub-sections and chapters. It may thus be used as a text book in various courses of remote sensing or as a book for independent learning in advanced studies. The target audiences are students and researchers from different fields such as geography, geology, and the natural and engineering science. Yitzhak August Geography Research Forum -- Professor Paul Curran
