About the Book

Published on the occasion of the XXIst Congress of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) in Beiijng, China in 2008, Advances in Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences: 2008 ISPRS Congress Book is a compilation of 34 contributions from 62 researchers active within the ISPRS. The book covers the state-of-the-art in photogrammetry, remote sensing, and spatial information sciences, and is divided into six parts:

- Introduction

- Sensors, Platforms and Data Acquisition Systems

- Data Processing and Analysis

- Data Modelling, Management and Visualisation

- Applications

- Education and Cooperation.

Advances in Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences: 2008 ISPRS Congress Book provides a comprehensive overview of the progress made in these areas since the XXth ISPRS Congress, which was held in 2004 in Istanbul, Turkey. The volume will be invaluable not only to scientists and researchers, but also to university students and practitioners.
