"This volume is an indispensable update of the 1st edition. The inclusion of new sensors, state-of-the art image processing techniques and practical applications makes this a must-have for urban remote sensing scientists."
— Karen C. Seto, Yale University, Connecticut, USA"This book provides a comprehensive overview of new developments in urban remote sensing, including novel techniques for image/signal processing applied to the monitoring of urban areas, and wider applications of urban remote sensing in order to meet societal and economic challenges. The book also covers other important aspects such as data, sensors, and systems for urban remote sensing, as well as applications for assessing and modeling urban landscape compositions, patterns, and structures. It is a fundamental reference for students, researchers, and practitioners interested in conducting in-depth studies and research on urban remote sensing."
— Antonio J. Plaza, University of Extremadura, Cáceres, SpainRemote sensing of urban areas is a very hot topic. This second edition of Urban Remote Sensing is both important and timely. It covers all major aspects of the field contributed by leading experts.
—Jón Atli Benediktsson, University of Iceland
