Increasingly, in the field of earth observation imagery, there is a need for image quality to be assessable in traceable Standard International Units (SIU), and for the standardization of common mapping projections. These two needs, plus the increased usage of combinations of data and image types, provided the stimuli for the development of this important volume.

Prepared by members of the Joint ISPRS/CEOS WGCV Task Force on Radiometric and Geometric Calibration, this book is a valuable text for those in the fields of remote sensing technology, calibration, Earth observation, and electro-optical sensor parameters.

By detailing current calibration procedures and the latest 'best practices', this latest addition to the ISPRS Series addresses the need for consistency throughout the discipline, and encourages the development of coherent, high-quality Earth observation imagery.
