About this Textbook

"Remote Sensing of Urban and Suburban Areas" provides instructors with a text reference that has a logical and easy-to-follow flow of topics around which they can structure the syllabi of their urban remote sensing courses. Topics have been chosen to bridge the gap between remote sensing and urban studies through a better understanding of the science that underlies both fields. In so doing, the book includes 17 chapters written by leading international experts in respected fields to provide a balanced coverage of fundamental issues in both remote sensing and urban studies. Emphasis is placed on: theoretical and practical issues in contemporary urban studies and remote sensing; the spectral, spatial and temporal requirements of remotely sensed data in relation to various urban phenomena; methods and techniques for analyzing and integrating remotely sensed data and image processing with geographic information systems to address urban problems; and examples of applications in which applying remote sensing to tackle urban problems is deemed useful and important. This book will be of interest to university instructors, advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers in the fields of geography, architecture, engineering and urban planning. - Logical and easy-to-follow flow of topics around which university instructors can structure the syllabuses of their urban remote sensing courses - Set-up of chapters contains educational aids such as learning objectives, summarizing text boxes, exercises and learning activities at the end of each chapter.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book presents theoretical issues and worthwhile practical applications of remote sensing of urban and suburban environments. … book provides dedicated contributions to several topics of fundamental importance, especially for undergraduate and graduate students as well as researchers and practitioners. … a valuable contribution to the current discussions regarding remote sensing of urban settlements.” (Tobias Matusch and Nima Ahmadian, Erde, Vol. 143 (3), 2012)
