About this book

Earth observation technology for GIS interacts with space, computer, communication, remote sensing, and information technologies, and plays an increasingly significant role in earth science studies for GIS, resource inventory and management, and the development of a sustainable environment and community.

"Geospatial Technology for Earth Observation Data" provides a broad and in-depth collection of recent progress in earth observation technology. Contributed by leading experts in the field, this is one of the few books that covers geospatial image processing and information extraction exclusively, and is devoted to the theoretical and technical details of this process. "Geospatial Technology for Earth Observation Data" serves as a valuable training source for researchers, developers and practitioners within the geospatial science and engineering industry.

This book is also suitable as a reference textbook for advanced-level students and professors in computer science, engineering, and geosciences.
