'Within only a few pages the reader is immediately drawn into the art and science of remote sensing, and how professionals use and supply specific terms and definitions. - if you are interested in comprehensive overview of current imaging satellites for high resolution imaging wrapped in basic remote sensing education then this book will be hard to beat.' 3D Visualisation World 'The preface for this book states that it is intended for students, people working in map production, and scientists working in fields other than mapping. ... Does it fulfil that purpose? The answer is a wholehearted 'yes'. ... There is plenty of information that will assist people who need to order data acquisition mission and produce DTM and orthoimagery products. ... There are clear illustrationsthroughout, many references, an excellent index and a glossary or terms'. Geomatics World '...is certainly very focussed on geometric principles, but is also likely to provide essential reading for scientists outside the traditional photogrammetric disciplines. ...contains a definitive overview of the current status of high-resolution satellite imaging, which reflects the collective experience of its prominent authors. The text is logically structured and nicely illustrated, with clear figures, and good use of colour. ...is likely to prove popular with a wide-ranging audience, from undergraduate students, to scientists across a range of environmental science disciplines'. International Journal of Remote Sensing 'The book stands as a good reference for students and professionals. ...fills an important gap in studies on high spatial resolution satellite data. The authors explain introductory topics in sufficient detail and open discussions for more advanced subjects. ...an easy-to-read and high-quality book. The authors were able to create a useful reference on the subject for a wide audience, including scientists and engineers. Scholars working with spatial data will also find this reference extremely valuable in their studies'. Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing
