GIS and Remote Sensing Applications in Urban Planning. According to the World Health Organization more than half of people on the planet live in urban areas with the expectation that urbanization will continue to expand. 1 It is critical to the health of the environment that this urbanization be appropriately Size: KB. PRINCIPLES OF REMOTE SENSING Shefali Aggarwal Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Division Indian Institute of Remote Sensing, Dehra Dun Abstract: Remote sensing is a technique to observe the earth surface or the atmosphere from out of space using satellites (space borne) or from the air using aircrafts (airborne).   Determining the rate of urban growth and urban spatial configuration, from remote sensing data, is a prevalent approach in contemporary urban geographic studies. Maps of growth and a classified urban structure derived from remotely sensed data can assist planners to visualize the trajectories of their cities, their underlying systems, functions. Hyperspectral Remote Sensing is the winner of the Joseph W. Goodman Book Writing Award, which recognizes recent and influential books in the field of optics and photonics that have contributed significantly to research, teaching, business, or industry.

  “Remote Sensing is the art and science of acquiring information about the earth surface without having any physical contact with it. This is done by sensing and recording of reflected and emitted energy.” In the process of Remote Sensing involves an interaction between the incoming radiation and interest of target. This volume of the Manual of Remote Sensing series, Volume This book is a comprehensive, up-to-date resource for oceanographers and marine scientists interested in applications of satellite imagery and other remote sensing techniques to studying and monitoring ocean and coastal waters. The volume is organized for quick access to topics.   The primary role of remote sensing in land management and planning has been to provide information concerning the physical characteristics of the land which influence the management of individual land parcels or the allocation of lands to various uses These physical characteristics have typically been assessed through aerial photography, which is used to Cited by: 4. Remote Sensing Handbook - Three Volume Set 1st Edition. Prasad S. Thenkabail Novem A volume in the three-volume Remote Sensing Handbook series, Remote Sensing of Water Resources, Disasters, and Urban Studies documents the scientific and methodological advances that have taken place during the last 50 years.

  One of the reasons why GIS is important in urban planning is the ability to better understand current needs for a city, and then design to fulfill those needs. By processing geospatial data from satellite imaging, aerial photography and remote sensors, users gain a detailed perspective on land and infrastructure.   Remote Sensing and Urban Analysis book.
