About this book

This volume deals with measurements and estimations of forest stand parameters using aerial photographic, aircraft and satellite scanning data, radar and laser imagery. It includes technical and statistical information of practical examples from both temperate and tropical forests. The obtained results are compared with those from other techniques, showing their relative advantage or disadvantage. This book should be of interest to foresters and specialists in remote sensing, as well as those involved in teaching and practical applications of aerial photographic, satellite and other remotely-sensed data in forestry.
