About the Book
The book provides a comprehensive coverage of techniques, applications and technologies of remote sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS).
It is organized into three parts: the first part focuses on the basic concepts of Remote Sensing, Digital Image Processing and Geographical Information System; second part deals with the application aspects in the field of natural resource management and the third part covers applied aspects of environment and regional planning based on primary field observations.
In fact, Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS) techniques are being widely used since last two decades, mainly by earth scientists, geologists, geographers, regional planners, environmentalists in the fields of mineral explorations, archaeological excavations, geographical and topographical analysis, terrain studies, urban planning, regional planning, natural resources management, natural disaster management etc. The basic purpose of this book is to provide literature to research scholars, scientist and planners working in fields of application of remote sensing and GIS.
