2.0 out of 5 stars Review, November 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bewarned !!! this is strictly an e book.
If like me you like to have some hard copy to ponder over and maybe highlight and mark up, don't spend your money on this.
The PDF is locked from printing out any pages.

I find it very inefficient to have everything in digital form. My work. that's fine but when I want to refer to things repetitivey I still like them in hard copy form. Faster for me at least. This doesn't allow that option.

2.0 out of 5 stars Variogram, November 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Don't waste your money buying this.
It's just a collection, largely disjointed, of Wikipedia information about Variograms.
Put your money towards a more substantial book on spatial statistics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remote Sensing of Vegetation, November 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This publication is very comprehensive and covers a lot of material. As such it takes quite a lot of time and work to explore its many facets. Having only recently purchased the book I still have a lot to explore in it. At this early stage it appears to be the most comprehensive and well organised publication on remote sensing of vegetation on the market. It is also well organised, easy to navigate and well written. It reflects the committment of the authors to an excellent scholarly publication.

3.0 out of 5 stars Field methods in Remote sensing, November 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This publication covers the basics of remote sensing field work. In this capacity it is a good introduction. Its limitation is that it doesn't cover the application of new technology to the computer to field work interface. For example, it doesn't cover the use of GPS units with online or postdifferential signal correction, the use of GPS embedded data dictionaries, and mobile devices running ArcMobile or ArcPad type software for field data collection. It would benefit a lot by revision to include the ways in which these newer technologies can be used to increase the rigor of field data collection and to decrease the cost of field work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Review of Think Python, June 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I recently bought this book. I caution others to consider the following points. It is a waste of time and a total disappointment because:

1. The print type is so small and so faint you quickly tire of straining to read the text.
2. It says it is for beginners yet it doesn't provide any guidance about the following:
a. Where do you down load the Python program from and where should you install it!
b. What is required for a 64 bit versus a 32 bit system? Does it matter?
c. How do you get started? What window do you open? How do you navigate to or load the Python Program in the unknown window?????

How can the promoters have the audacity to say it is a beginners book? In my view that is a completely fraudulent claim.

My only satisfaction was that I warmed my house with it by burning it in the fire place.
