CRC - Planetary Remote Sensing and Mapping

Organization: CRC
Publication Date: 12 November 2018
Page Count: 350
scope:

The early 21st century marks a new era in space exploration. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) of the United States, The European Space Agency (ESA), as well as space agencies of Japan, China, India, and other countries have sent their probes to the Moon, Mars, and other planets in the solar system. Planetary Remote Sensing and Mapping introduces original research and new developments in the areas of planetary remote sensing, photogrammetry, mapping, GIS, and planetary science resulting from the recent space exploration missions. Topics covered include:

Reference systems of planetary bodies

Planetary exploration missions and sensors

Geometric information extraction from planetary remote sensing data

Feature information extraction from planetary remote sensing data

Planetary remote sensing data fusion

Planetary data management and presentation

Planetary Remote Sensing and Mapping will serve scientists and professionals working in the planetary remote sensing and mapping areas, as well as planetary probe designers, engineers, and planetary geologists and geophysicists. It also provides useful reading material for university teachers and students in the broader areas of remote sensing, photogrammetry, cartography, GIS, and geodesy.
