Time-Sensitive Remote Sensing

Editors: Lippitt, Christopher, Stow, Douglas, Coulter, Lloyd (Eds.)

  • Only concise collection of literature on the use of remote sensing for rapid response
  • Special attention paid to natural and anthropogenic hazards which are increasing in frequency and severity, and which remote sensing has a critical role to play
  • Puts in perspective the significant technical and administrative hurdles to overcome if the potential of remote sensing as rapid response tool is to be realized
  • Covers geospatial hazard response which has been recognized by the two largest remote sensing and geospatial technology groups, ISPRS and ASPRS, as a critical initiative

About this book

This book documents the state of the art in the use of remote sensing to address time-sensitive information requirements. Specifically, it brings together a group of authors who are both researchers and practitioners, who work toward or are currently using remote sensing to address time-sensitive information requirements with the goal of advancing the effective use of remote sensing to supply time-sensitive information. The book addresses the theoretical implications of time-sensitivity on the remote sensing process, assessments or descriptions of methods for expediting the delivery and improving the quality of information derived from remote sensing, and describes and analyzes time-sensitive remote sensing applications, with an emphasis on lessons learned. This book is intended for remote sensing scientists, practitioners (e.g., emergency responders or administrators of emergency response agencies), and students, but will also be of use to those seeking to understand the potential of remote sensing to address a range of pressing issues, particularly natural and anthropogenic hazard response.
