Book Description

Re-envisioning Remote Sensing Applications: Perspectives from Developing Countries aims at discussing varied applications of remote sensing, with respect to upcoming technologies with diverse themes. Organized into six sections of overlapping areas of research, the book covers chapters with themes related to agriculture, soil and land degradation studies, hydrology, microclimates and climate change, land use/land cover analysis, resource analysis and watershed management, urbanization and urban problems, and applications of remote sensing in disaster management and planning, culminating with future research agenda. All the topics are supported via case studies and spatial data analysis. This book is of interest to researchers and graduate students in environmental sciences, remote sensing, GIS, agricultural scientists and managers, forestry scientists and managers, water resources scientists and managers.


  • Provides the applications of remote sensing in all fields through varied case studies and spatial data analysis

  • Includes soil and land degradation, microclimates, watershed management and planning

  • Covers remote sensing applications in broad areas of agriculture, hydrology, land use, resource analysis and urban problems

  • Discusses usage of GPS enabled smart phones and digital gadgets used for mapping and spatial analysis

  • Explores applications of remote sensing in disaster management and planning
