From the reviews of the first edition: "Quantitative evaluation of satellite and aircraft derived and remotely retrieved data is a increasingly important tool for all ecologists. The author fulfills his stated aim of providing an introductory text for non-specialists. The book introduces all the basic concepts necessary to facilitate quantitative evaluation of digital remotely sensed data in such a way that the reader can appreciate limitations of computer-based algorithms and the pros and cons of alternative procedures without having to follow a mathematically detailed treatment. Each of the eleven chapters concludes with a critical appraisal of the associated bibliography and with a collection of problems, presumably aimed at undergraduate students, but of considerable use to the single reader as well." #Ecomod - The ISEM Newsletter#1
Now in its second edition this well established introductory text presents the complete spectrum of acquisition, analysis and processing of remotely sensed image data. The revisions reflect the developments in satellite and sensor programs as well as new processing techniques. A new chapter is devoted to knowledge-based image processing.

The book provides the non-specialist with an introduction to quantitative evaluation of satellite and aircraft derived from remotely retrieved data. Each chapter covers the pros and cons of digital remotely sensed data, without detailed mathematical treatment of computer based algorithms, but in a manner conductive to an understanding of their capabilities and limitations. Problems conclude each chapter.
