About this book

Introduces the fundamentals of remote sensing from an earth resource (versus engineering) perspective. Emphasis is on turning remote sensing data into useful spatial biophysical or socio-economic information that can be used to make decisions. Assumes a course in introductory remote sensing or air photo interpretation, college algebra, and basic statistics.
