About this book

Provides an overview of the state of the art of spatial statistics for remote sensing, highlighting new frontiers in this rapidly developing field of science.

...constitutes a nice synopsis of an extensive array of topics and ideas. a reference source, it is definitely worth having access to, and it would be an appropriate addition for most research libraries. does represent a contribution to the literature that individuals involved in remote sensing data analysis should like to have at their disposal, and so libraries should be encouraged to add it to their collections. (Mathematical Geology, 35:1 (2003)
