about

Maximize a geographical information tool by incorporating it with up-to-date remotely sensed data

GIS is predominantly a data-handling technology, while remote sensing is a data retrieval and analysis technology. This book addresses the need to combine remotely sensed data with cartographic, socioeconomic, and environmental data and GIS functionalities.

Remote Sensing and GIS Integration begins with theoretical discussions, followed by a series of application areas in urban and environmental studies that employ the integration of remote sensing and GIS. Each application area is examined through analysis of state-of-the-art methods and detailed presentations of one or more case studies.

Dr. Qihao Weng is an associate professor in the Department of Geography, Geology, and Anthropology at Indiana State University. He is a national director of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS).
