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.
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.

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
Commercial Observation Satellites : At the Leading Edge of Global Transparency by Peter M. Atkinson (Editor), Nicholas J. Tate (Editor)
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.

Remote Sensing by Robert A. Schowengerdt
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)
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.
