About the Author:

University of Hannover, Germany


"... a thorough, comprehensive, and attractive overview of geoinformation that exceeds pure mapping, shedding light into drivers and causes. The thought is stimulated and new ideas might become the seed for multidisciplinary new activities and services in the future. Well-written and worthwhile reading, this book is an asset for one’s library."
―Ioannis Manakos, Information Technologies Institute, Centre for Research and Technology, Thessaloniki, Greece

"... gives the big picture of how remote sensing, photogrammetry, and geographic information systems work together in an interdisciplinary manner to serve the widespread needs of society. ... Gottfried Konecny, with his background knowledge and experience in photogrammetry and remote sensing and his skills in lecturing in all parts of the world, provides this valuable, comprehensive book which is a ‘must’ for all students and professionals in the field of geoinformation."
―Dr. Rainer Sandau, International Academy of Astronautics

"Gottfried Konecny has a unique understanding of the whole field of geoinformation and is able to present the material in a holistic manner. The content presents essential up-to-date material on remote sensing; sensors, processing, and applications; analytical and digital photogrammetry and airborne laser scanning; GIS hardware and software components and applications; positioning systems; and cost considerations for the acquisition and implementation of geoinformation systems. I highly recommend this book as a text for students and scholars who wish to gain further knowledge on the characteristics and development of geoinformation systems that have broad applications in many scientific and technical aspects of increasingly complex human and physical environments."
―John Trinder, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia

"The second edition of this book brings out the fundamentals of the entire spectrum of geospatial technology and its trends and directions, which may guide next-generation professionals."
―Sanjay Kumar, Geospatial Media and Communications, Noida, India
