Unpaid Annotation
Ninety papers from the June 1999 symposium explore issues covering operational applications and developments of remote sensing using satellites and other technologies. The focus of the volume is on methods of converting the vast amount of data being generated by remote sensing technologies into useful information which can help in the analysis of how to promote economic development while preserving natural resources. The papers cover applications in agriculture, forestry, yield estimation, decertification, geology, forest fires, hazards, hydrology, meteorology, oceanography, and new methodologies including radar and hyperspectral techniques.
