Journals. For many species, especially those living in remote areas, we currently lack this information. These findings illustrate the importance of public protected lands in mitigating range loss due to land use changes, and the potential positive impact of strategic. Remote sensing—the acquisition of information from a distance—has had a profound impact on human affairs in modern history.

This image of British Beach (the WWII code name for one landing spot of the June Normandy invasion) taken from a specially equipped US Army F5, reveals rifle troops on the beach coming in from various large and small landing craft.

Despite the growing awareness of the utility of remote sensing for protected area monitoring, few managers are able to use unprocessed remote sensing data because of the lack of technical skills within management teams and the time-intensive nature of data processing (McDermid et Cited by: This book provides the reader with detailed information on national parks and protected areas in Northern Tanzania using cutting edge remote sensing and geospatial technologies for conservation, with an enhanced perspective from local experts and practitioners.

“The book is brilliant – a real gem. It contains some of the best descriptions I’ve seen of planning a GIS/RS research project, steps to follow, statistics and approaches used in species modelling and remote sensing classification.

[ ] I’m definitely going to recommend it to my students.

The book is an invitation to rethink processing routines in place for Earth observation data. As such, the intended readers of the book are remote sensing experts being new to command line processing or having already some experience with this technology. Today, the presence of green areas in cities plays an important role for the well-being of its inhabitants and its sustainable development.

Modern cities need green spaces for environmental, psychological, esthetic, economic, and social reasons. In this meaning, Chilean cities, although Chile is still considered by the United Nations1 as a developing economy, are no exception.
