About this book

This book aims to provide a single record of current research status, technologies and applications of geospatial techniques in various fields around the world. The objective of the proposed book is to provide state of the art information to academics, researchers and industry practitioners who are involved or interested in the study, use, design and development of advanced and emerging geospatial technologies around the world with ultimate aim to empower individuals and organizations in building competencies for exploiting the opportunities of the knowledge society. This book offers theoretical perspective and practical solutions to graduate students, researchers, practitioners and professionals working in the areas of remote sensing, GIS, geovisualization, and geomatics. This book will be also suitable as a supplement reference book for graduate-level students in geospatial sciences and engineering.
