This book is an extension to the acclaimed scientific bestseller "GPS - Theory and Practice". It covers Global Navigation Satellite Systems GNSS and includes the Russian GLONASS, the European system Galileo, and additional systems.
Inside, you''ll find captivating views of Earth from space alongside the science behind observed changes.
Remote sensing is a technology that engages electromagnetic sensors to measure and monitor changes in the earth's surface and atmosphere. Normally this is accomplished through the use of a satellite or aircraft. This book, connects the science of earth remote sensing with various tools and techniques of computer-aided image processing.
GIS-T, an increasingly popular field, is the branch of GIS related to transportation. This professional reference/graduate level text presents a comprehensive and rigorous analysis of GIS-T applications in the analysis and planning of transportation systems.
The primary focus of this text is on the process of cartographic modeling and GIS modeling. The text goes beyond cartographic modeling to incorporate supplementary or complementary technologies and logics to show that spatio-temporal modeling is not limited to cartographic modeling, nor to Map Algebra.
This is one of the first books to take an ecological perspective on uncertainty in spatial data. It applies principles and techniques from geography and other disciplines to ecological research, and thus delivers the tools of cartography, cognition, spatial statistics, remote sensing and computer sciences by way of spatial data.
This exploration of geographic information and geographic information systems GIS expands the discussion beyond the normal input-processing-output sequence. It uses case studies to examine the various applications of each type of geographic information.
The world of remote sensing and GIS is changing at a pace. This volume brings together developments in these complimentary fields, with a particular emphasis on mathematical techniques and their application.
