Machine Vision and Advanced Image Processing in Remote Sensing Book Review:

Since 1994, the European Commission has undertaken various actions to expand the use of Earth observation (EO) from space in the Union and to stimulate value-added services based on the use of Earth observation satellite data.' By supporting research and technological development activities in this area, DG XII responded to the need to increase the cost-effectiveness of space derived environmental information. At the same time, it has contributed to a better exploitation of this unique technology, which is a key source of data for environmental monitoring from local to global scale. MAVIRIC is part of the investment made in the context of the Environ ment and Climate Programme (1994-1998) to strengthen applied techniques, based on a better understanding of the link between the remote sensing signal and the underlying bio- geo-physical processes. Translation of this scientific know-how into practical algorithms or methods is a priority in order to con vert more quickly, effectively and accurately space signals into geographical information. Now the availability of high spatial resolution satellite data is rapidly evolving and the fusion of data from different sensors including radar sensors is progressing well, the question arises whether existing machine vision approaches could be advantageously used by the remote sensing community. Automatic feature/object extraction from remotely sensed images looks very attractive in terms of processing time, standardisation and implementation of operational processing chains, but it remains highly complex when applied to natural scenes.

High Spatial Resolution Remote Sensing Book Review:

High spatial resolution data including those from satellite, manned aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms provide a novel data source for addressing environmental questions with an unprecedented level of detail. To effectively utilize information contained in high spatial resolution imagery, some key questions must be addressed, including: (1) what are the challenges of using new sensors and new platforms? (2) what are the cutting-edge methods for fine-level information extraction from high spatial resolution images? and (3) how can high spatial resolution data improve the quantification and characterization of physical-environmental or human patterns and processes? The chapters in this book provide a snapshot of cutting-edge high spatial resolution remote sensing image collection, preprocessing, processing, and applications. This book intents to provide a useful benchmark for the high spatial resolution remote sensing community and inspire more studies that would address important scientific and technical challenges in use of high spatial remote sensing.
