Book Description

31 Oct 1997
This book is a tutorial that will enable readers to become proficient with the use of image data in projects using geographical information systems (GIS). It begins with an introduction to image display, scanned maps, and remotely sensed imagery. Subsequent chapters focus on transforming pixel coordinates to real-world coordinates, image classification, classification accuracy assessment, and grid operations. The book's practical, hands-on approach facilitates rapid learning of how to process remotely sensed images, digital orthophotos, digital elevation models, and scanned maps, and how to integrate them with points, lines, and polygon themes. The companion CD-ROM includes files, images, and data sets employed in exercises throughout the book. (Keywords: GIS Applications)

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor 29 Oct 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I thought this book would help in the understanding of grid images and processing dem. Well, I was wrong. It does have some helpful hints, however, the book if full of errors includiong spelling and commad line errors. Either the editor did a poor job or the writer was not very into it when compiling this book. If you want the basic understanding of processing digital images this is a good book. However, I do not recomend this book do to the ammount of errors in it. I found missing steps, and inaccuracies in the processes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good Arc-image primer 18 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The book covers lots of ground... scanning density, grayscale versus binary versus color tradeoffs, getting scans to real-world coordinates, image enhancement, digital elevation models, image rectification, raster editing, etc.
Finally, I now understand exactly what is going on in the image rectification process!
I liked the idea of documentation files...tips like that have saved my butt many times...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good primer on images in GIS 12 Dec 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The topics covered (panchromatic and color display,
3-dimension images, hypsometric coloring, shaded relief,
arcscan, introduction to remote sensing, map projection,
map coordinates, image rectification, image classification,
classification accuracy assessment, grid operations, etc.)
were easy to understand. I found the chapter on scanning
considerations especially useful. Tips on documentation
files and creating image-based slide shows were good ideas.
The only major complaint I have is that the tutorial part is
old-fashioned text based commands rather than a menu-interface.
Otherwise, I think many useful concepts are covered in the
book.
