The majority of remote sensing work focuses on natural environments over the past decades. Applying remote sensing technology to urban areas is relatively new. With the advent of high resolution imagery and more capable techniques, urban remote sensing is rapidly gaining interest in the remote sensing community. This book systematically examines all aspects of the field for the first time. It features a review of basic concepts, methodologies, and case studies. Each chapter shows how to apply up-to-date techniques to the problems identified as well as how to analyze research results. Urban Remote Sensing serves as a reference for researchers, academics, and upper undergraduate and graduate students.
