About this book

Completely up-to-date coverage, from the basics to the latest remote sensing technologies. Extensively revised to address today's technological advances. Aerial Photography and Image Interpretation offers a thorough survey of the technology, techniques, processes, and methods used to create and interpret aerial photographs, as well as other forms of remote sensing. Takes remote sensing beyond its traditional use in forestry and broadens its applicability to a variety of other disciplines, including resource management, land-use planning, archeology, and many others. Every chapter is up to date with the most current information on all aspects of remote sensing, from fundamental terms and processes to cutting-edge material on such topics as orthophotography (including digital), soft copy photogrammetry, and digital image capture and interpretation. A basic introduction is also given to nonphotographic and space-based imaging platforms and sensors, including Landsat, lidar, thermal, and multispectral. New chapters cover GPS, GIS, small format aerial photography, statistical analysis and thematic mapping errors, active remote sensors, and environmental monitoring (which is addressed in a full chapter of applied examples).
