High Resolution Optical Satellite Imagery
This book had been awarded the Karl Kraus Medal 2016 by ISPRS. It is Written by a team of acknowledged international experts, this is a comprehensive guide to the characteristics and use of high resolution optical images from satellite-borne sensors, concentrating on sensors designed for mapping. It considers in detail satellites launched since 1999 with GSD of less than 1m, but also looks at sensors with a ground sample distance (GSD) of less than 15m, operational since SPOT 1. The book explains to students, anyone working in map production and scientists working in fields other than mapping, the way in which high resolution imagery is obtained and the issues which surround its collection and use.

Contents: Introduction; History of optical sensors in space; Principles of high resolution optical sensors; Sensors of greater than 1m up to 16m GSD; Sensors of 1m GSD and less; Calibration, sensor models and orientation; Processing and products; Future developments; Conclusions; Abbreviations and commonly used terms; Index

From the reviews:
• ‘...fills an important gap in studies on high spatial resolution satellite data. ... The book stands as a good reference for students and professionals’. Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing
• ‘If you are interested in comprehensive overview of current imaging satellites for high resolution imaging wrapped in basic remote sensing education then this book will be hard to beat’. 3D Visualisation World
