    CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 GENERAL Urbanization is one of the most powerful and visible anthropogenic forces on Earth. Since the second half of the twentieth century‚ the world has experienced its fastest rate of urbanization‚ particularly in developing countries. Urbanization refers to the increase in population‚ density‚ or extent of cities over time. Dramatic urban expansion was found with similar degree of cropland decrease. Urban expansion caused evident environmental impacts on

  • remote sensing

    What is Remote Sensing? Remote sensing‚ in simplest words‚ means acquiring information about an object without touching the object itself.  Conventionally‚ however remote sensing has come to imply that the sensor and the target are located remotely apart and the electromagnetic radiation serves as a link between the sensor and the object‚ the sun being the major source of energy illuminating the earth. The part of this energy is reflected‚ absorbed and transmitted by the surface. A sensor records

  • Contribution of Remote Sensing in Mapping Industry

    Contribution of Remote Sensing in Mapping Industry According to Wikipedia remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object. In modern usage‚ the term generally refers to the use of aerial sensor technologies to detect and classify objects on Earth. It is including both on the surface‚ and in the atmosphere and oceans. The way its detect and classify is by propagated signals such as electromagnetic radiation emitted from

  • Remote Sensing & Gis Applications in Diaster Management

    REMOTE SENSING AND GIS IN DIASTER MANAGEMENT INTRODUCTION Satellites monitoring Earth’s resources and natural disasters. Each satellite has different repeat pass frequency and spatial resolution (unless it belongs to the same series of satellites for the purpose of continuation of data flow with same specifications). Similarly‚ different satellites have different types of sensors on-board‚ such as‚ panchromatic‚ multispectral‚ infrared and thermal. All these sensors have applications
