About this book

Presents the concepts of imaging spectrometry by discussing the underlying physics and the analytical image processing techniques. The second part of the book presents in detail a wide variety of applications of these new techniques.

From the reviews: "Overall, this book is a valuable reference source. It is a good alternative to a general remote sensing textbook in the optical domain, because most of the underlying physical principles are given with sufficient detail to provide a good understanding of the applications and of the limitations of hyperspectral sensing. Overall it is a good quality work, with only a limited number of repetitions from one chapter to another, which is sometimes difficult to achieve in a multi-authored book." (GEOMATICA, 57:4, 2004)
