Fundamentals of Satellite Remote Sensing by Emilio Chuvieco,Alfredo Huete

By Emilio Chuvieco,Alfredo Huete

An vast evaluate of distant sensing ideas with an emphasis on environmental functions, Fundamentals of satellite tv for pc distant Sensing discusses quite a lot of themes, from actual rules to information acquisition platforms and directly to visible and electronic interpretation innovations. The text focuses at the interpretation and research of distant sensing photographs and the way they enhance our realizing of environmental tactics and their interplay with human actions.


The authors speak about new interpretation methods, together with hyperspectral research, high-spatial answer info, and radiative move versions. The presentation comprises an research of accuracy overview equipment and demonstrates how one can combine distant sensing effects with geographic info systems. It additionally covers contemporary missions, equivalent to Terra-Aqua, Envisat, Ikonos-Quickbird-Geoeye and SPOT-5, in addition as LIDAR and interpherometric radar.


The dialogue of visible standards to extract interpretation from satellite tv for pc photos emphasizes transformations and similarities with traditional photo-interpretation thoughts. A bankruptcy on accuracy evaluate and the relationship among distant sensing and geographic details structures is helping readers expand the translation of satellite tv for pc photographs to a extra operational, applications-oriented framework.
