For courses in Geomatics/Surveying.
Divided into three parts—Fundamentals, Remote Sensing, and Engineering Applications—this state-of-the-art exploration of the theory and applications of geomatics recognizes the expansion and advances in the field and the broadening of the allied disciplines that have a direct interest in the newest technological approaches to geo-data collection, processing, analysis, management, and presentation. Exceptionally well-written by an author with many years of practical experience in both teaching and surveying, it covers both traditional topics in surveying and the more recently developed topics in geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning (GPS) and airborne imagery, together with satellite imagery (remote sensing)—all with a focus on applications of interest in the fields of civil, surveying, and geological engineering, physical geography, environmental, natural resources, etc.
