Description

This book gives comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals, the techniques, and the demonstrated results of a variety of projects in a manner accessible to both the novice and the advanced user of remotely sensed data. This is a unique and distinctive work on change detection in landscapes and watersheds and examines topics such as the basis of image analysis, change detection, radar and validation (or accuracy assessment). A number of North American case studies take the reader through real examples - with all the successes and pitfalls. There are advanced topics for the experienced user including advanced classification techniques (eg. pixel mixing). Established data sources such as Landsat MSS and AVHRR data are described as are new sensors such as radar and AVIRIS. Applications include fire, wetlands, forests, environmental change, vegetation, Amazonia, and the savannah. The book concludes with a description of methods for performing a change detection accuracy assessment.show more
