NEW- CD version of the popular DIGITAL AERIAL SURVEY.
A comprehensive manual that is creating quite a stir in the surveying community. It examines the systems available for data capture and photogrammetric processing and provides an opportunity for readers to apply photo-interpretation, reconnaissance and photomapping techniques to many planning, resource harvesting, pollution prevention, civil engineering, disaster mitigation and containment requirements.
Included within the 12 chapters are the principles of digital systems, digital aerial photography, cameras, survey-camera mountings, survey navigation, GPS and (d)GPS systems. In addition there is sound coverage of soft-copy photogrammetry, ground survey control and a final chapter devoted to typical digital air surveys worldwide.

Airborne and Terrestrial Laser Scanning – book
Professor George Vosselman, Profesor of Geo-Information Extraction with Sensor Systems at the International Institute for Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) Enschede, The Netherlands and Professor Hans-Gerd Maas, Professor of Photogrammetry, Institute of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Dresden University of Technology, Germany
· Major new text which provides the state-of-the-art on laser scanning technology
· Includes a wide range of applications
Written by a team of international experts, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the major applications of airborne and terrestrial laser scanning. The book focuses on principles and methods and presents an integrated treatment of airborne and terrestrial laser scanning technology.
Laser scanning is a relatively young 3D measurement technique offering much potential in the acquisition of precise and reliable 3D geodata and object geometries. However, there are many terrestrial and airborne scanners on the market, accompanied by numerous software packages that handle data acquisition, processing and visualization, yet existing knowledge is fragmented over a wide variety of publications, whether printed or electronic.
This book brings together the various facets of the subject in a coherent text that will be relevant for advanced students, academics and practitioners. After consideration of the technology and processing methods, the book turns to applications. The primary use thus far has been the extraction of digital terrain models from airborne laser scanning data, but many other applications are considered including engineering, forestry, cultural heritage, extraction of 3D building models and mobile mapping.

The Digital Image, Ron Graham, Aerial Survey Consultant and Research Associate, Bath Spa University College, UK, A completely revised and updated edition of the successful first edition
Since Digital Imaging was first published, numerous improvements and changes in resolution and quality of imaging have been made and this book includes the most up-to-date developments. With the increase in diversity of cameras and their consequent reduction in price, The Digital Image becomes an even more important book to guide readers through the terminology and developments.
This new edition will therefore be the definitive handbook for digital imaging, enabling the reader to understand the technology, terms, relationships and to follow developments in this rapidly growing sector of imaging.
Digital imagery offers much more than simply film by way of its versatility, manipulability and convenience of use, all of which are exemplified in this book.
Contents: Introduction. Radiometry; Photometry and Visual Science; Fundamentals of Imaging Systems; Electrical Properties of Semiconductors; Digital Cameras; Image Processing; Digital Printers; Digital Imaging Applications. Appendix A, Binary and ASCII Codes. Appendix B, Fundamental Constants and Conversion of Units. Appendix C, Manufacturers and Agents, Institutions and Publications. Glossary. References. Index.
Small Format Aerial Photography by Ron Graham, Roger, Read, W.S. Warner
Small format aerial photography provides an inexpensive alternative to conventional large format aerial survey. This book forms a complete guide to aerial photography operations using small cameras. From the basics of mapping, measurement and photography to all technical details of planning a survey and numerous applications and case studies, the book enables the reader to understand all aspects of the subject. The authors draw on their wealth of experience resulting in a book that is full of practical advice and helpful hints to ensure the reader benefits fully from this flexible and cost-efficient technique.

High Resolution Optical Satellite Imagery
Professor Ian Dowman, Emeritus Professor University College London, Dr. Karsten Jacobsen and Professor Gottfried Konecny, both Institute for Photogrammetry and GeoInformation, Hannover University, Germany and Dr. Rainer Sandau, German Aerospace Center
• A comprehensive guide to the characteristics and use of high resolution optical images from satellite-borne sensors
• Addresses the problems and issues surrounding the generation of high quality information
• Provides a review of planned sensors
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.
It deals progressively with the fundamentals of mapping from imagery, followed by the key features in the design of sensors and methods of data storage and transmission, including data compression. Subsequent chapters cover the sensors, calibration, sensor models and the methods of determining the orientation elements and extracting coordinates from the images. Rigorous orientation, use of rational polynomial coefficients (RPCs) and approximate methods are covered. Results from tests showing the accuracy which can be obtained, generation of digital elevations models, their accuracy and the production of orthoimages are included, as are image processing and data fusion. Finally, future missions and the issues which face further development are discussed.
High Resolution Optical Satellite Imagery is written by a team of acknowledged international experts and is the only comprehensive text on the subject.
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
