Book Overview

Introduces the principles of remote sensing from an earth resource perspective. This book reviews the nature of electromagnetic radiation and how the reflected or emitted energy in the visible, near-infrared, middle-infrared, thermal infrared, and microwave portions of the spectrum can be collected by a variety of sensor systems and analyzed.

Remote sensing from an environmentalists perspective

Purchased this book for a graduate course in GIS. It was a good choice for the course objectives.


It was exactly what I wanted!! But it took a little longer to get to me than I expected. But otherwise the book was great!!

Penn State Geog 497g requirement

I purchased this book while enrolled in Penn State's Geospatial Intelligence certificate program. I have enjoyed the contents and the book does a great job of covering a wide variety of Remote Sensing principles without getting too bogged down in the technical jargon. I would highly recommend reading this for a great overall perspective on Remote Sensing.

Best overall coverage of the topic I've found

This text found its way into my collection during my undergraduate career as required for a Geography course in remote sensing. I ejoyed it as an introduction to the topic but later found myself returning to it time and again in graduate school working on a remote sensing thesis. I keep on finding new reasons to open it up in my business, at Terra Prints. It's exhaustive while not exhausting. Worth buying. Roland Clark


This book covers broad area of remote sensing; nature, physics, photogrametry, history, various types of sensors (multispectral, thermal, Microwabe..), earth resource perspective(vegetation, water, urban landscape, soil & mineral...). So if you want to learn how remote sesning are employed in this world, I strongly recommend to buy this book. if you want to learn digital image processing, you should buy the sister book "Introductory Digital Image Processing: remote sensing perspective". All sections (especially vegetation) contains alot of infomation and easy to understand with nice figures and pictures. Only one fault of this book is this price...
