Remote Sensing and Image Interpretation, 7th Edition is designed to be primarily used in two ways: as a textbook in the introductory courses in remote sensing and image interpretation, and as a reference for the burgeoning number of practitioners who use geospatial information and analysis in their work. Because of the wide range of academic and professional settings in which this book might be used, we have made the discussion “discipline neutral.” In short, anyone involved in geospatial data acquisition and analysis should find this book to be a valuable text and reference.

A guide to image interpretation, this book contains detailed color plates and tables that compare satellite imaging systems, list remote sensing web sites, and detail photointerpretation equipment. It includes case histories of the search for petroleum and mineral deposits and examines engineering uses of remote sensing. The volume comprises four sections: project initiation; exploration techniques; exploitation and engineering remote sensing; and environmental concerns. They combine to provide readers with a solid foundation of what image interpretation is and enables them to recognize features of interest and effectively use imagery in projects for the petroleum, mining, or groundwater industries.

Remote sensing and its kindred technologies, such as geographic information systems (GIS) and the Global Positioning System (GPS), are having a pervasive impact on the conduct of sciences, government, and business alike. This book is designed as a reference tool for the burgeoning number of practitioners who use geospatial information and analysis in their work. Rapid advances in computational power and sensor design are allowing remote sensing and its kindred technologies, such as geographic information systems (GIS) and the Global Positioning System (GPS), to play an increasingly important role in science, engineering, resource management, commerce, and other fields of human endeavour. Because of the wide range of academic and professional settings I which this book might be used, we have made the discussion "discipline neutral". That is, rather than writing a book heavily orientated toward a single field such as business ecology, engineering, forestry, geography, geology, urban and regional planning, or water resource management, we approach the subject in such a manner that students and practitioners in any discipline should gain a clear understanding of remote sensing and their virtually unlimited applications. In short, anyone involved in geospatial data acquisition and analysis should find this book to be a valuable text and reference.
