This book describes an integrated approach to using remotely sensed data in conjunction with geographic information systems for landscape analysis. Remotely sensed data are compressed into an analytical image-map that is compatible with the most popular geographic information systems as well as freeware viewers. The approach is most effective for landscapes that exhibit a pronounced mosaic pattern of land cover. The image maps are much more compact than the original remotely sensed data, which enhances utility on the internet. As value-added products, distribution of image-maps is not affected by copyrights on original multi-band image data.…mehr

Autorenporträt
Dr. Wayne L. Myers earned M.F. and Ph.D. degrees in forest ecology and forest entomology at the University of Michigan. He began his professional career in Canada as a research forest entomologist and biometrician. He then joined the faculty of forestry at Michigan State University specializing in biometrics and remote sensing. The position at Michigan State also encompassed consultancies with the U.S. Forest Service and a work in Brazil. He moved to Penn State University in 1978 in the School of Forest Resources. He is professor of forest biometrics and Director of the Office for Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Resources (ORSSIR) in the Penn State Institutes of Environment.

He has thirty-five years of experience in research on development of remote sensing, geographic information systems, and related spatial technologies with applications focusing on natural resources and environment. This extends back to participation as a co-investigator in early investigations of ERTS/LANDSAT as the first spaceborne civilian multispectral sensor.

His recent research has focused on dual level progressive segmentation of multispectral images for purposes of compression, integration with geographic information systems and pattern-based change detection. He has developed concepts and computation of echelons of spatial structure in digital surfaces that facilitate extracting major change features from change indicator images. Echelons offer alternatives to thresholding in surface or pseudo-surface rasters. Dome domains provide a further generalization of topological structure in signal surfaces.

He has extensive international experience including long-term advisory for the U.S. Agency for International Development in India and research fellowships in Malaysia. He has placed special emphasis on interdisciplinary research and team approach.
