Remotely-sensed images of the Earth's surface provide a valuable source of information about the geographical distribution and properties of natural and cultural features. This fully revised and updated edition of a highly regarded textbook deals with the mechanics of processing remotely-senses images. Presented in an accessible manner, the book covers a wide range of image processing and pattern recognition techniques. Features include:
New topics on LiDAR data processing, SAR interferometry, the analysis of imaging spectrometer image sets and the use of the wavelet transform.
An accompanying CD-ROM with:
updated MIPS software, including modules for standard procedures such as image display, filtering, image transforms, graph plotting, import of data from a range of sensors.
A set of exercises, including data sets, illustrating the application of discussed methods using the MIPS software.
An extensive list of WWW resources including colour illustrations for easy download.

End-of-Life Communication in the ICU: A Global Perspective
The world is composed of multiple, diverse populations of different race,
culture, and religion. Increasingly, these populations are mixing and intermingling,
both physically with faster and cheaper air travel, and mentally via
communication systems, including the Internet. Knowledge of other countries,
cultures, and continents... Graphics Gems Iv/Book and Mac Version Disk (The Graphics Gems Series) (No.4)
We make images to communicate. The ultimate measure of the quality of our images is how well they communicate information and ideas from the creator’s mind to the perceiver’s mind. The efficiency of this communication, and the quality of our image, depends on both what we want to say and to whom we intend to say it. I believe that...
Approximate Iterative Algorithms
Iterative algorithms often rely on approximate evaluation techniques, which may include statistical estimation, computer simulation or functional approximation. This volume presents methods for the study of approximate iterative algorithms, providing tools for the derivation of error bounds and convergence rates, and for the optimal design of...
Types and Programming Languages
A type system is a syntactic method for automatically checking the absence of certain erroneous behaviors by classifying program phrases according to the kinds of values they compute. The study of type systems--and of programming languages from a type-theoretic perspective--has important applications in software engineering, language design,...
