Book Description

December 15, 2009 1405159685 978-1420087130 2

Demonstrating the breadth and depth of growth in the field since the publication of the popular first edition, Image Analysis, Classification and Change Detection in Remote Sensing, with Algorithms for ENVI/IDL, Second Edition has been updated and expanded to keep pace with the latest versions of the ENVI software environment. Effectively interweaving theory, algorithms, and computer codes, the text supplies an accessible introduction to the techniques used in the processing of remotely sensed imagery.

This significantly expanded edition presents numerous image analysis examples and algorithms, all illustrated in the array-oriented language IDL—allowing readers to plug the illustrations and applications covered in the text directly into the ENVI system—in a completely transparent fashion. Revised chapters on image arrays, linear algebra, and statistics convey the required foundation, while updated chapters detail kernel methods for principal component analysis, kernel-based clustering, and classification with support vector machines.

Additions to this edition include:

  • An introduction to mutual information and entropy
  • Algorithms and code for image segmentation
  • In-depth treatment of ensemble classification (adaptive boosting )
  • Improved IDL code for all ENVI extensions, with routines that can take advantage of the parallel computational power of modern graphics processors
  • Code that runs on all versions of the ENVI/IDL software environment from ENVI 4.1 up to the present—available on the author's website
  • Many new end-of-chapter exercises and programming projects

With its numerous programming examples in IDL and many applications supporting ENVI, such as data fusion, statistical change detection, clustering and supervised classification with neural networks—all available as downloadable source code—this self-contained text is ideal for classroom use or self study.

5.0 out of 5 stars Math intensive book on the subject January 21, 2011
Format:Hardcover
Don't you just hate it when such a potentially helpful book exists and you can't at least see the table of contents? Well, I provide that below. As for details, I find it a very helpful and very heavily mathematical book. You won't just see the same old stuff on convolution kernels, histogram equalization and matching etc. rehashed with very few technical details and lots of pretty color plates. Be prepared to look at theorems and a few derivations, but the book is practical too. I'd highly recommend it to the professional who is ready for some more advanced material. As for IDL/ENVI, the algorithms are described well enough you don't have to use that as an implementation language. If you don't know ENVI/IDL this is a pretty good tutorial without trying nearly as hard as programming books on that specific subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is amazing!!! December 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is one of the most useful books I have ever bought. It is very practical if you have ENVI/IDL on your computer, you can immediately run the codes and get useful results. I really love it, in fact it is fun when using this book. I wish the author will incorporate algorithms for processing radar data and other image processing techniques left out in the next edition.

"This book is actually more than a five star rating!"
