Regardless of the promising and interesting chances awarded by way of new and fast-developing distant sensing applied sciences utilized to city parts, there's nonetheless a niche perceived among the commonly educational and research-focused spectrum of effects provided by means of the ''urban distant sensing'' group and the applying of those information and items through the neighborhood governmental our bodies of city towns and areas. whereas there is not any finish of attention-grabbing technological know-how questions that we will ask approximately towns, occasionally those questions do not fit good with what the operational difficulties and matters of a given urban are. The authors current information from six city areas from around the globe. They clarify what the real questions are, and the way you possibly can use info and clinical talents to assist resolution them.

Example text

Both the Terra and Aqua satellites are equipped with MODIS sensors providing repeat coverage over any given area of the Earth every one to two days. This makes MODIS data attractive for high temporal resolution monitoring of regional land-surface processes associated with urban centers (Schaaf et al. 2002; Schneider et al. 2003). The MODIS science team also provides validated data products useful for characterization and monitoring of regional-scale biogeophysical and climatic variables in urban and periurban areas.

Astronaut photography has also been used to track urban growth in several US cities (Robinson et al. 2000). Extensive use has been made of the Landsat series of sensors to characterize urban extent and materials (Forster 1980; Jackson et al. 1980; Jensen 1981; Haack 1983 Haack et al. 1987; Stefanov et al. 2001b, 2003), and to conduct basic comparisons of urban centers (Ridd 1995; Ridd and Liu 1998). These sensors provide coarse to moderately high spatial resolution (up to 15 m/pixel), fairly low spectral resolution (up to seven bands in the visible through shortwave infrared and one to two thermal infrared bands), and good temporal resolution (typically fourteen- to sixteen-day repeat cycle).
