Remote Sensing and Image Interpretation presents the principles on which remote sensing is used, and explores the interplay between remote sensing and GIS. It describes the tools of photography, airphoto interpretation processes, and principles of acquiring and interpreting data collected by non-photographic sensors. Extensively illustrated, this invaluable reference provides a balance between classical visual image interpretation and digital image processing techniques. It spotlights the interaction among related areas of remote sensing, GIS, GPS, digital image processing, and environmental modeling. Coverage is presented in a way that practitioners in virtually any field can use the information.
