Imaging science is a multidisciplinary field concerned with the generation, collection, duplication, analysis, modification, and visualization of images, including imaging things that the human eye cannot detect. As an evolving field it includes research and researchers from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering, computer vision, computer science, remote sensing, and perceptual psychology. The book series will review the subfields within imaging science that include: image processing, computer vision, 3D computer graphics, animations, atmospheric optics, astronomical imaging, digital image restoration, digital imaging, color science, digital photography, holography, magnetic resonance imaging, medical imaging, microdensitometry, optics, photography, remote sensing, radar imaging, radiometry, silver halide, ultrasound imaging, photoacoustic imaging, thermal imaging, visual perception, and various printing technologies. The books in this series assume that readers have a basic knowledge of remote sensing and imaging science, and therefore will not cover very basic materials but concentrate on those aspects of imaging science and the application discipline(s) that are pertinent for a ‘how to’ knowledge. This provides academic authors and leading professionals an opportunity to combine their research, consultancy, and interesting project work into a book that is then relevant to professional lines of work or teaching modules focusing on imaging science applications.
