      Beginning with the history and basic concepts of remote sensing and GIS, the book gives an exhaustive coverage of optical, thermal and microwave remote sensing, global navigation satellite systems (such as GPS), digital photogrammetry, visual image analysis, digital image processing, spatial and attribute data model, geospatial analysis, and planning, implementation and management of GIS/5(77). M. Salvemini, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, GPS (Global Positioning System) is a radio wave receiver used to provide coordinates that give the exact position of an element in a certain radio waves are emitted by a constellation of orbiting satellites, which function as a reference system for GPS. In reality GPS is based on technology that is.

    This system is based on new tools and sources of information provided by modern technologies. These include Remote Sensing (RS), Geographic Information System (GIS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) are such technologies that are much more reliable, precise and efficient as well than any other resource assessment technology. These maps are built with Global Positioning Systems (GPS), remote sensing satellites, or Geographic Information Systems (GIS): digital spatial hardware and software designed for such military and governmental uses as reconnaissance, secrecy, monitoring, ballistics, the census, and national security.

    The Geographic Information System (GIS), remote sensing and Global Positioning System (GPS) are presented in an integrated manner for the planning of resources and infrastructure. The management of these systems is discussed in a very lucid way to develop the reader's ers: Remote sensing in geology is remote sensing used in the geological sciences as a data acquisition method complementary to field observation, because it allows mapping of geological characteristics of regions without physical contact with the areas being explored. About one-fourth of the Earth's total surface area is exposed land where information is ready to be extracted from detailed earth.
