About this book

Building on the foundation of the bestselling first edition, Aerial Mapping: Methods and Applications, Second Edition provides you with a practical understanding of aerial photography, remote sensing, and photogrammetric mapping. The content is deliberately semi-technical and processes are discussed in a manner easily accessible to anyone regardless of their technical or scientific background. This new edition highlights the significant changes in equipment and techniques. High-speed computers, scanners, and remote sensors have changed the way mapping is done. The principles of photogrammetry, image analysis, and remote sensing have become dynamically intertwined. With the solid grounding in basic procedures that Aerial Mapping: Methods and Applications, Second Edition provides you can apply your knowledge to the special conditions of each aerial mapping project.
