Introduction to Remote Sensing: Digital Image Processing and Applications presents a unique textbook/downloadable resources package. It explains how digital images can be processed and offers practical hands-on experience of image processing. This package, which is ideal for student self-study, institutional or library purchase, shows how digital images can be processed to maximize information output and discusses a range of environmental monitoring techniques. A range of case studies are explored, drawn from a variety of disciplines and from across the world. The book also includes a practical manual of image processing instruction and detailed practical exercises to support the unique downloadable resources which accompanies the book.
The downloadable resources contain fully functioning image processing software - a limited edition of DRAGON software developed specifically for readers of Introductory Remote Sensing - and over 70 satellite digital datasets for 9 scenes across America, Ireland, China, Sudan, Peru, Western Europe and the UK.
