About this book
Recent developments in remote sensing technology have greatly extended the range of data available to those studying the Earth from a distance. A remote sensing analyst can now choose from a wide range of spatial, spectral, temporal and radiometric scales to address a particular question. However, this increased choice places additional onus on the analyst to be aware of a much broader range of topics and issues. The SAGE Handbook of Remote Sensing will provide exactly that resource.
