Remote Sensing

  • Structure from Motion in the Geosciencesby Jonathan L. Carrivick; Mark W. Smith; Duncan J. Quincey

    Wiley 2016; US$ 123.95 US$ 107.42

    Structure from Motion with Multi View Stereo provides hyperscale landform models using images acquired from standard compact cameras and a network of ground control points. The technique is not limited in temporal frequency and can provide point cloud data comparable in density and accuracy to those generated by terrestrial and airborne laser scanning... more...

  • Digital Photogrammetryby Wilfried Linder

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 79.99

    With several tutorials of increasing complexity, accompanied by texts explaining further theory, this third edition is an "all-in-one" combination of basic theory and practical exercises on digital photogrammetry. more...

  • The Geometry of Urban Layoutsby Mahbub Rashid

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 179.00

    This book presents a compendium of the urban layout maps of 2-mile square downtown areas of more than one hundred cities in developed and developing countries?all drawn at the same scale using high-resolution satellite images of Google Maps. The book also presents analytic studies using metric geometrical, topological (or network), and fractal measures... more...

  • Spatial Contextby Christopher Gold

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 179.95

    Many disciplines are concerned with manipulating geometric (or spatial) objects in the computer ? such as geology, cartography, computer aided design (CAD), etc. ? and each of these have developed their own data structures and techniques, often independently. Nevertheless, in many cases the object types and the spatial queries are similar, and this... more...

  • Fundamentals of Physics and Chemistry of the Atmospheresby Guido Visconti

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    This book is an introductory course to the physics and chemistry of the atmosphere and to climate dynamics. It covers the basics in thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, radiation, and chemistry and explains the most intriguing problems that currently exist in the study of the atmospheres of the Earth and planets. A particular effort is made to approach... more...

  • Earth Science Satellite Applicationsby Faisal Hossain

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 179.00

    The combined observational power of the multiple earth observing satellites is currently not being harnessed holistically to produce more durable societal benefits. We are not able to take complete advantage of the prolific amount of scientific output and remote sensing data that are emerging rapidly from satellite missions and convert them quickly... more...

  • VIII Hotine-Marussi Symposium on Mathematical Geodesyby Nico Sneeuw; Pavel NovŠk; Mattia Crespi; Fernando SansÚ

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 199.00

    Proceedings of the Symposium in Rome, 17-21 June, 2013 more...

  • Light Scattering Reviews, Volume 11by Alexander Kokhanovsky

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 229.00

    This is the eleventh volume in the series Light Scattering Reviews, devoted to current knowledge of light scattering problems and both experimental and theoretical research techniques related to their solution. The focus of this volume is to describe modern advances in radiative transfer and light scattering optics. This book brings together the... more...

  • Remote Sensing and Water Resourcesby A. Cazenave; N. Champollion; J. Benveniste; J. Chen

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00

    This book is a collection of overview articles showing how space-based observations, combined with hydrological modeling, have considerably improved our knowledge of the continental water cycle and its sensitivity to climate change. Two main issues are highlighted: (1) the use in combination of space observations for monitoring water storage changes... more...

  • Multi-Antenna Synthetic Aperture Radarby Wen-Qin Wang

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 183.95

    Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is a well-known remote sensing technique, but conventional single-antenna SAR is inherently limited by the minimum antenna area constraint. Although there are still technical issues to overcome, multi-antenna SAR offers many benefits, from improved system gain to increased degrees-of-freedom and system flexibility. ... more...
