Remote sensing for GIS managers

Author: Stanley Aronoff
Publisher: Redlands, Calif. : ESRI Press : Independent Publishers Group (IPG) [distributor], 2005.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 1st edView all editions and formats
Summary:
This guide to remote sensing technology presents GIS managers who have no previous remote sensing experience with the basics of integrating it with GIS data. How to use remote sensing technology as geographic data is demonstrated, as is how remote sensing products are the perfect complement to GIS-based analysis in industries such as emergency response, meteorology, water resources, land use, and urban planning.  Read more...

How to use remote sensing technology as geographic data is demonstrated, as is how remote sensing products are the perfect complement to GIS-based analysis in industries such as emergency response, meteorology, water resources, land use, and urban planning. Managers are guided through the evolution of remote sensing technology and shown the approaches that different organizations have successfully used to incorporate remote sensing data into their work. Information on remote sensing history, characteristics, sensors, image products, and practical applications of remote sensing data is also included."@en ;
