Special Publications

LANDSAT 7 Update - May 2002 (PDF)
This monthly notice from the USGS will bring LANDSAT users and product developers up to speed on recent developments and issues.

RADARSAT User Guide(PDF)
This guide to products and services will help you order RADARSAT products that are best suited for your needs. Unlike other satellites, RADARSAT offers users a choice of 35 basic products; each varies with respect to the area covered and the way in which the earth's surface is imaged.


RADARSAT Geology Handbook (PDF)
The RADARSAT Geology handbook is intended to be used as a training and reference guide for those geologists making the transition from the optical to the radar environment, and for those geologists who are already using RADARSAT data.



RADARSAT Annual Review 2000-2001 (PDF)
RADARSAT-1 is the Canadain Space Agency's first Earth Observation Satellite (EOS). Equipped with a powerful SAR instrument, the satellite acquires images of the Earth day or night, in all weather conditions.

Trade Publications

Image Processing Europe - This popular trade publication is available free to qualified subscribers (International eligible) Image Processing Europe has established itself as the leading European magazine for imaging and machine vision professionals. The editorial team has forged strong links with both industry and academia, developing a comprehensive understanding of the issues facing both users and suppliers of imaging technologies throughout Europe.



Vision Systems Design - Vision Systems Design gives machine vision systems and image processing professionals their own magazine that focuses 100% on designing or integrating image-capture, processing, storage, transmission or output products for a wide range of scientific, medical industrial and military/aerospace applications.



Books

Commercial Observation Satellites : At the Leading Edge of Global Transparency by Peter M. Atkinson (Editor), Nicholas J. Tate (Editor) ($120.00) - An authoritative and state-of-the-art book bringing together some of the most recent developments in remote sensing and GIS analysis with a particular emphasis on mathematical techniques and their applications.

With contributions from academia, industry and research institutes, all with a high standing, this book covers a range of techniques including: fuzzy classification, artificial neural networks, geostatistical techniques (such as kriging, cokriging, stochastic simulation and regularization, texture classification, fractals, per-parcel classification, raster and vector data integration and process modelling. The range of applications includes land cover and land use mapping, cloud tracking, snow cover mapping and air temperature monitoring, topographic mapping, geological classification and soil erosion modelling.

This book will be valuable to both researchers and advanced students of remote sensing and GIS. It contains several new approaches, recent developments, and novel applications of existing techniques. Most chapters report the results of experiment and investigation. Some chapters form broad reviews of recent developments in the field. In all cases, the mathematical basis is fully explained.

Advances in Remote Sensing and GIS Analysis by Peter M. Atkinson (Editor), Nicholas J. Tate (Editor) ($130.00) - With contributions from academia, industry and research institutes, all with a high standing, this book covers a range of techniques including: fuzzy classification, artificial neural networks, geostatistical techniques (such as kriging, cokriging, stochastic simulation and regularization, texture classification, fractals, per-parcel classification, raster and vector data integration and process modelling. The range of applications includes land cover and land use mapping, cloud tracking, snow cover mapping and air temperature monitoring, topographic mapping, geological classification and soil erosion modelling.



Remote Sensing by Robert A. Schowengerdt ($75.36) - Following the standard set by the previous volume, the Second Edition of Remote Sensing: Models and Methods for Image Processing has been completely updated with recent results and data about this developing technology. In particular, this Second Edition discusses a framework for designing and evaluating image processing technology, which is the backbone of remote sensing. The material is suited for graduate level engineering, physical and natural science courses, or for practicing remote sensing scientists. Each chapter is enhanced by student exercises designed to stimulate an understanding of the material. Over 300 figures were produced specifically for this book and numerous tables provide a rich bibliography of the research literature.



Introductory Digital Image Processing: A Remote Sensing Perspective by John R. Jensen, 316 pages 2 edition (August 24, 1995) ($70.67) - This text focuses exclusively on the art and science of digital image processing of satellite and aircraft-derived remotely-sensed data for resource management. Extensively illustrated, it explains how to extract biophysical information from remote sensor data for almost all multidisciplinary land-based environmental projects. Part of the Prentice Hall Series Geographic Information Science.



Remote Sensing and Image Interpretation, 4th Edition by Thomas M. Lillesand, Ralph W. Kiefer (Hardcover) ($145.10) - This revised and updated edition expands the discussion of such topics as photointerpretation strategies, hyperspectral scanning, classification accuracy assessment, and new satellite systems. It also greatly increases the emphasis on the intimate two-way relationship between remote sensing and GIS. There are many new line drawings and photographic illustrations, and over half of the (24) color plates are new.



Spatial Analysis, Gis, and Remote Sensing Applications in the Health Sciences by Donald P. Albert(Editor), et al (September 1, 2000) ($55.96) - Book News Inc. says "Geographers and epidemiologists explain some of the ways geographical information systems can be applied in human and environmental health. Their topics include how spatial analysis can be used in medical geography, health services research, infectious disease, and a historical perspective on the development of remotely sensed data as applied to medical geography."



Remote Sensing of the Environment: An Earth Resource Perspective by John R. Jensen (Hardcover) 544 pages 1 edition (January 3, 2000) ($91.00 ) - This text introduces the fundamental principles of remote sensing from an earth resource perspective. This book is a companion volume to Dr. Jensen's widely-adopted Introductory Digital Image Processing. Emphasis in this book is placed on manual, visual image analysis of the remote sensor data using introductory photogrammetric techniques.It 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.



Assessing the Accuracy of Remotely Sensed Data : Principles and Practices by Russell G. Congalton, Kass Green 180 pages (October 1998)($59.95) - Because the accuracy of remotely sensed data is critical to any successful mapping project, accuracy assessment is an important tool for anyone who uses remote sensing. This is a complete guide to assessing the accuracy of maps generated from remotely sensed data, and the only book available that is devoted solely to this complex topic.
