About this book

A practical introduction to the use of remote sensing data, this book focuses on the benefits, limitations, and pitfalls involved in the use of this important tool, employing case studies to clearly demonstrate both principles and practices.

The authors identify themselves as applied biologists who made a number of mistakes when they themselves started using remotely sensed imagery and found, in talking with other biologists/environmentalists who were also exploring digital imagery, that their errors were common to a number of individuals. This book is an attempt to prevent others from making the same errors, and to define both the limits and capabilities of remote sensing . . . [E]xtremely well done.
