   schema:description "This volume covers all the main fields of remote sensing in a very comprehendible manner. Most of the chapters are presented in a semi-historic account that shows the development of the field or in methods of data processing. The discussion is accompanied by high-quality color images and graphs in order to provide as full coverage of the topics as possible. The structure of the book is organized very systematically into sections, sub-sections and chapters. It may thus be used as a text book in various courses of remote sensing or as a book for independent learning in advanced studies. The target audiences are students and researchers from different fields such as geography, geology, and the natural and engineering science."@en ;
