Pixalytics publishes its first book ‘Practical Handbook of Remote Sensing’ providing a beginners guide to the world of satellite data

Written by Dr Samantha Lavender and Andrew Lavender, the Practical Handbook of Remote Sensing will be published in November 2015 by CRC Press of the Taylor & Francis Group.

It combines Samantha’s 15 years of remote sensing experience, with Andrew’s non-expert perspective as he navigates the subject for the first time.

The book is general how-to guide for anyone wanting to use remote sensing, and quickly guides inexperienced individuals through the principles and science, allowing them to undertake remote sensing at home with just a computer and free-to-access desktop software. The book is very practical with lots of example exercises that walk readers through the process of finding, downloading, analyzing, and viewing environmental data. In addition, there are further exercises and a complementary website to support readers.
