About this book

This book discusses the fundamentals of land use/land cover characterization and mapping using remote sensing technology. It covers basic concepts of land use/land cover mapping, outlines an overview and history, enumerates today's status and development, and determines the relationship between land cover and land use. It also considers the classification systems used with remotely sensed data, as well as state-of-the-art methods and techniques in data acquisition, pre-processing, classification, and accuracy assessment needed for land use/land cover characterization and mapping. Synthesizing decades of research conducted by leading scientists in the field, the text presents a new perspective on the subject.


Fundamentals and Concepts. Methodology for Land Cover Classification. Application Examples/Case Studies. Present Situation of Future Prospects.
