about this item

Image Processing and SIS for Remote Sensing Techniques And Applications Second Edition

Following the successful publication of the first edition in 2009, the second edition maintains its aim to provide an application-driven package of essential techniques in image processing and GIS, together with case studies for demonstration and guidance in remote sensing applications. The book therefore has a "three in one" structure that pinpoints the intersection between these three individual disciplines and successfully draws them together in a balanced and comprehensive manner.

The book conveys in-depth knowledge of image processing and GIS techniques in an accessible and comprehensive manner, with clear explanations and conceptual illustrations used throughout to enhance student learning. The understanding of key concepts is always emphasised with minimal assumption of prior mathematical experience.

The book is heavily based on the authors' own research. Many of the author-designed image processing techniques are popular around the world. For instance, the smoothing filter-based intensity modulation (SFIM) technique has long been used by Astrium for mass production of their standard "pan-sharpen" imagery data. The new edition also includes a completely new chapter on sub-pixel technology and new case studies, based on the authors' recent research.
