About the Journal

Remote sensing is the art and science of making measurements of the earth using sensors on airplanes or satellites and geographic information system (GIS) is a computer-based tool for mapping and analyzing feature events on earth. It integrates common database operations, such as query and statistical analysis, with maps.

The open access journal Remote sensing & GIS is a scientific journal that includes a wide range of fields in its discipline and reports the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object. It allows to view and analyse multiple layers of spatially related information associated with a geographic region/location. It publishes all concerned research findings and discoveries pertaining to the ingredients and their mode of therapeutic nature to create a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the journal.

All the articles are peer reviewed by eminent people in the field. Journal strives to publish and get a worthy impact factor by quick visibility through its open access guiding principle for world class research work.

Cartogram

Cartogram is a map in which some thematic mapping variable such as travel time, population. The geometry or space of the map is distorted in order to convey the information of this alternate variable. There are two main types of cartograms: area and distance cartograms. An area cartogram is sometimes referred to as a value-by-area map or an isodemographic map, the latter particularly for a population cartogram, which illustrates the relative sizes of the populations of the countries of the world by scaling the area of each country in proportion to its population; the shape and relative location of each country is retained to as large an extent as possible, but inevitably a large amount of distortion results.

Cartography

Cartography is the study and practice of making maps. Combining science, aesthetics, and technique, cartography builds on the premise that reality can be modeled in ways that communicate spatial information effectively. Modern cartography is largely integrated with geographic information science (GIS) and constitutes many theoretical and practical foundations of geographic information systems.In cartography, technology has continually changed in order to meet the demands of new generations of mapmakers and map users. The first maps were manually constructed with brushes and parchment; therefore, varied in quality and were limited in distribution. The advent of magnetic devices, such as the compass and much later, magnetic storage devices, allowed for the creation of far more accurate maps and the ability to store and manipulate them digitally.

Change detection remote sensing

In remote sensing application, a change may be considered to as an alteration of the surface components. Change detection is used in Forest or vegetation, landscape and urban change. The process of identifying differences in the state of an object or phenomenon by observing it at different times. It is useful in many applications such as land use changes, habitat fragmentation, rate of deforestation, coastal change, urban sprawl and other cumulative changes. It involve the application of multitemporal datasets to quantatively analyse the temporal effects.

Geodesy

Geodesy also known as geodetics or geodetics engineering which is a branch of applied mathematics and earth sciences. It is the scientific discipline that deals with the measurement and representation of the Earth, including its gravitational field, in a three-dimensional time-varying space. Geodesists also study geodynamical phenomena such as crustal motion, tides, and polar motion. For this they design global and national control networks, using space and terrestrial techniques while relying on datums and coordinate systems.It is primarily concerned with positioning within the temporally varying gravity field.

Geodynamics

Geodynamics is a subfield of geophysics dealing with dynamics of the Earth. It applies physics, chemistry and mathematics to the understanding of how mantle convection leads to plate tectonics and geologic phenomena such as seafloor spreading, mountain building, volcanoes, earthquakes, faulting and so on. It also attempts to probe the internal activity by measuring magnetic fields, gravity, and seismic waves, as well as the mineralogy of rocks and their isotopic composition. Methods of geodynamics are also applied to exploration of other planets. Geodynamics is generally concerned with processes that move materials throughout the Earth. In the Earth’s interior, movement happens when rocks or melts deform and flow in response to a stress field. This deformation may be brittle, elastic, or plastic, depending on the magnitude of the stress and the material’s physical properties, especially the stress relaxation time scale.

Geographic information system (GIS)

Geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of spatial or geographical data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographical information science or geospatial information studies to refer to the academic discipline or career of working with geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of Geoinformatics. GIS is a broad term that can refer to a number of different technologies, processes, and methods. It is attached to many operations and has many applications related to engineering, planning, management, transport/logistics, insurance, telecommunications, and business.

Geovisualization

Geovisualization refers to a set of tools and techniques supporting geospatial data analysis through the use of interactive visualization.It emphasizes knowledge construction over knowledge storage or information transmission. It communicates geospatial information in ways that, when combined with human understanding, allow for data exploration and decision-making processes. Geovisualization has made inroads in a diverse set of real-world situations calling for the decision-making and knowledge creation processes it can provide. It represents a set of cartographic technologies and practices that take advantage of the ability of modern microprocessors to render changes to a map in real time, allowing users to adjust the mapped data on the fly.

Lidar Remote Sensing

LIDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, it is a remote sensing technology that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure variable distances to the Earth. LIDAR is an acronym for LIght Detection And Ranging.It is an active remote sensing technology. As a non-image nadir-looking active sensor, laser sensor obtain digital topographic data of high accuracy by measuring the round-trip time of laser pulses reflected from the Earth’s surface. Active airborne sensor emits several thousand infrared laser pulses per second. If location and orientation of laser scanner is known, can calculate a range measurement for each recorded echo from a laser pulse.

Multispectral Remote Sensing

In the visual interpretation of remotely sensed images, a variety of image characteristics are brought into consideration: color (or tone in the case of panchromatic images), texture, size, shape, pattern, context, and the like. However, with computer-assisted interpretation, it is most often simply color (i.e.the spectral response pattern) that is used. It is for this reason that a strong emphasis is placed on the use of multispectral sensors (sensors that, like the eye, look at more than one place in the spectrum and thus are able to gauge spectral response patterns), and the number and specific placement of these spectral bands.

Radiometry

Radiometry is a set of techniques for measuring electromagnetic radiation, including visible light. This techniques in optics characterize the distribution of the radiation's power in space, as opposed to photometric techniques, which characterize the light's interaction with the human eye. Radiometry is distinct from quantum techniques such as photon counting.The use of radiometers to determine the temperature of objects and gasses by measuring radiation flux is called pyrometry. Handheld pyrometer devices are often marketed as infrared thermometers. Radiometry is important in astronomy, especially radio astronomy, and plays a significant role in Earth remote sensing. The measurement techniques categorized as radiometry in optics are called photometry in some astronomical applications, contrary to the optics usage of the term.

Remote sensing agriculture

Remote sensing in agricultural, views crops from a satellite or low-flying aircraft, records what is viewed, and display the image to provide a "map" of crop health and soil conditions. Environmentally-sound agriculture increasingly is information-driven. Implementation of new management paradigms such as Integrated Pest Management and Integrated Crop Management requires ready access, by the manager, to environmental data. Satellite-based measurements and the Internet provide two key tools for this access.

Remote Sensing of Environment

Remote sensing environment means studying the environment from a distance using techniques such as satellite imaging, aerial photography and radar. Remote sensors gather information by measuring the electromagnetic radiation. It serves the remote sensing community with the publication of results on theory, science, applications and technology of remote sensing of Earth resources and environment.

Remote sensing images

Image produced by a recording device that is not in physical or intimate contact with the object under study. This may be map or other image. Remotely sensed images of the environment are typically taken at a great distance from the earth's surface. As a result, there is a substantial atmospheric path that electromagnetic energy must pass through before it reaches the sensor. Depending upon the wavelengths involved and atmospheric conditions (such as particulate matter, moisture content and turbulence), the incoming energy may be substantially modified. The sensor itself may then modify the character of that data since it may combine a variety of mechanical, optical and electrical components that serve to modify or mask the measured radiant energy. In addition, during the time the image is being scanned, the satellite is following a path that is subject to minor variations at the same time that the earth is moving underneath. The geometry of the image is thus in constant flux.

Remote Sensing

Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object without making physical contact with the object and thus in contrast to site observation. Remote sensing is a subfield of Geography. Remote sensing refers to the activities of recording/observing/perceiving (sensing) objects or events at far away (remote) places. In remote sensing, the sensors are not in direct contact with the objects or events being observed. The information needs a physical carrier to travel from the objects/events to the sensors through an intervening medium. The electromagnetic radiation is normally used as an information carrier in remote sensing. Sonar (sound navigation and ranging) technology is used to collect measurements from the sea floor by collecting point or raster data derived from the strength and time of the acoustic return. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) uses single and multibeam sonar for numerous applications like mapping seafloor geology, field verifying other remotely sensed data sets, navigation, disaster recovery and salvage, and habitat
studies, among other uses.

Remote sensing satellites

In satellite remote sensing of the earth, the sensors are looking through a layer of atmosphere separating the sensors from the earths surface being observed.

Remote sensing techniques

Techniques used in remote sensing Aerial photography, Manned-Spaced photography, Landsat Satellite imagery to collect information about a given object or area. Remote sensing techniques constitute an extremely sophisticated set of surveying approaches which include aerial photography, ariborne or satellite digital imagery and LiDAR.  These images are recorded by sensors responding to both visible and non-visible radiation (light) and are gathered from airborne and satellite platforms. Electromagnetic radiation is readily absorbed by water, the degree of penetration depending on clarity, with typically no more than 15 to 20m even in clear water.These techniques are reliant on specialist operations, be they satellite or airborne.

Spectral Response Patterns

A spectral response pattern is sometimes called a signature. It is a description (often in the form of a graph) of the degree to which energy is reflected in different regions of the spectrum. Most humans are very familiar with spectral response patterns since they are equivalent to the human concept of color.
