Our first book, Practical Handbook of Remote Sensing, was published by CRC Press in early November 2015. You can order the book at¬†https://www.crcpress.com/Practical-Handbook-of-Remote-Sensing/Lavender-Lavender/p/book/9781498704335
It¬†offers a complete understanding of the basic scientific principles needed to perform practical remote sensing at home or at work, using a personal computer.
Written by¬†Sam with her¬†20 years of experience along with¬†Andy’s perspective of a non-expert navigating¬†his way through remote sensing for the first time, it serves as a guidebook for anyone wanting to use¬†this technology without becoming an expert on the subject.
It explains the science behind remote sensing; describing what it is, how it works, and how it can be used in real life applications: urban environments, natural landscape, terrestrial water cycle, and coastal environments.
Using hands-on practical exercises¬†the book¬†shows readers¬†how to find, download, process and visualize freely available satellite remote sensing data, using just a standard personal computer and an internet connection
The book is accompanied by an online resource (www.playingwithrsdata.com) to support those working their way through it.
