    In 1912, six months after Robert Falcon Scott and four of his men came to grief in Antarctica, a thirty-two-year-old Russian navigator named Valerian Albanov embarked on an expedition that would prove even more disastrous. In search of new Arctic hunting grounds, Albanov's ship, the Saint Anna, was frozen fast in the pack ice of the treacherous Kara... more...

  • Remote Sensing and GIS Accuracy Assessmentby Ross S. Lunetta; John G. Lyon

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 220.00

    The development of robust accuracy assessment methods for the validation of spatial data represents a difficult challenge for the geospatial science community. Obstacles to robust assessments include continuous data characteristics and positional errors, demanding ongoing development by GIS and remote sensing experts. Based upon a special symposium... more...

  • Political Geographyby Mark Blacksell

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 55.95

    In 1904 Sir Halford Mackinder published his seminal paper The Geographical Pivot of History demonstrating the central position of political geography in the study of geography as a whole; a century later and political geography is still at the heart of human geography. Yet over time political geography has experienced many significant ups and... more...

  • Spatial Statistics for Remote Sensingby A. Stein; F.D. van der Meer; B. Gorte

    Springer 1999; US$ 129.00

    This book treats statistical issues that are of relevance in spatial studies for remote sensing. It consists of contributions by international experts in this field. A brief overview of basic statistics is given, followed by physical aspects of remote sensing.

  • Unifying Geographyby David T. Herbert; John A. Matthews

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 69.95

    It can be argued that the differences in content and approach between physical and human geography, and also within its sub-disciplines, are often overemphasised. The result is that geography is often seen as a diverse and dynamic subject, but also as a disorganised and fragmenting one, without a focus. Unifying Geography focuses on the plural and... more...

  • Thermal Remote Sensing in Land Surface Processingby Dale A. Quattrochi; Jeffrey C. Luvall

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 172.95

    Although remote sensing is recognized as a powerful tool, less attention has been given in the past to the use of thermal, and especially thermal infrared (TIR) remote sensing. TIR data is useful for understanding the fluxes and redistribution of materials as a key aspect of land surface processes and land-atmosphere inter-relationships. This book... more...

  • Foundations of Geographic Information Scienceby Matt Duckham; Michael F. Goodchild; Michael Worboys

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 132.95

    As the use of geographical information systems develops apace, a significant strand of research activity is being directed to the fundamental nature of geographic information. This volume contains a collection of essays and discussions on this theme. What is geographic information? What fundamental principles are associated with it? How can it be... more...

  • Post-Launch Calibration of Satellite Sensorsby Stanley A. Morain; Amelia M. Budge

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 139.95

    Increasingly, in the field of earth observation imagery, there is a need for image quality to be assessable in traceable Standard International Units (SIU), and for the standardization of common mapping projections. These two needs, plus the increased usage of combinations of data and image types, provided the stimuli for the development of this important... more...
