Industry Reviews

The authors identify themselves as applied biologists who made a number of mistakes when they themselves started using remotely sensed imagery and found, in talking with other biologists/environmentalists who were also exploring digital imagery, that their errors were common to a number of individuals. This book is an attempt to prevent others from making the same errors, and to define both the limits and capabilities of remote sensing . . . [E]xtremely well done.
