Remote Sensing of the Environment: An Earth Resource Perspective
|110.70||approx. 7-9 days|
For one-semester courses in Introductory Remote Sensing as well as Introductory Airphoto Interpretation. This widely adopted book introduces the fundamentals of remote sensing from an earth resource (versus engineering) perspective. Emphasis is on turning remote sensing data into useful spatial biophysical or socio-economic information that can be used to make decisions.
• Two new chapters:
– Chapter 10 (LIDAR Remote Sensing) introduces the fundamental principles associated with this powerful new type of remote sensing that provides detailed digital elevation and vegetation information.
– Chapter 15 (In situ Spectral Reflectance Measurement) describes how to collect in situ spectral reflectance measurements with a handheld radiometer in support of remote sensing studies. Few books have detailed chapters on these two very important topics.
• Unique, high-resolution PowerPoint slides of almost every illustration in each chapter from the author.
– Adopters simply contact Dr. Jensen via email and he makes the lecture plus exercise materials available free of charge via the internet.
– Remote sensing educators throughout the world have found these resources to be of significant value. No other textbook offers such a service free of charge.
