Notes on Satellite Remote Sensing

A how-to guide on accessing, processing, and analysing satellite images

About the Book

This book has been compiled with notes on satellite image processing taken by the author at different points in time (between 2003 and 2021). The author is a self-taught GIS and Remote Sensing professional who gained knowledge on the subject by trial and error and by making his hand dirty. Anyone who wants to get into the fascinating world of remote sensing can be benefited from the notes, even without any formal science/IT degree/background. The knowledge of this book can be applied to Spatial Data Science. The book is still at the drafting stage.
