Field Methods in Remote Sensing by Roger M. McCoy

By Roger M. McCoy

This concise, much-needed consultant takes readers step-by-step via making plans and executing box paintings linked to many differing types of distant sensing initiatives. distant sensing texts and learn experiences as a rule specialise in data-analytic thoughts whereas delivering a dearth of data on methods within the box. against this, this publication presents transparent thoughts for outlining box paintings goals, devising a sound sampling plan, discovering destinations utilizing GPS, and choosing and utilizing powerful size recommendations for box reflectance spectra and for reports of crops, soils, water, and concrete parts. Appendices characteristic pattern box word types, an in depth bibliography on complex and really good tools, and on-line metadata sources.
