Use and Interpretation of Remotely-Sensed Images

Synopsis
A selection of contrasting but complementary types of remotely sensed images. Some explanatory background of the physical basis of all remote sensing imaging systems is provided, together with a brief look at the analytical procedures available for the interpretation of visual data. Emphasis is on the logical interpretation of geographical scene characteristics, with specific guidance on matters requiring either technical comprehension or psychological persuasion (as in the case of infra-red false colours).
