Advances in Remote Sensing Technology

Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object and thus in contrast to on-site observation. Remote sensing is used in numerous fields, including geography, land surveying and most Earth Science disciplines (for example, hydrology, ecology, oceanography, glaciology, geology); it also has military, intelligence, commercial, economic, planning, and humanitarian applications.

In the present book, fifteen typical literatures about Remote Sensing Technology published on international authoritative journals were selected to introduce the worldwide newest progress, which contains reviews or original researches on commercial application, medical application, architecture application, ect. We hope this book can demonstrate advances in Remote Sensing Technology as well as give references to the researchers, students and other related people.
