Earth observation technology, in conjunction with in situ data collection, can be used to observe, monitor, measure, and model many of the components that comprise urban ecosystems cycles. Over the past decade, urban remote sensing has rapidly emerged as a new frontier in the Earth observation technology by focusing primarily on understanding the biophysical properties, patterns, and processes of urban landscapes, and mapping and monitoring of urban land cover and spatial extent. The second edition reflects new developments in satellite sensors, image processing methods and techniques, and the applications of urban remote sensing to meet societal and economic challenges at this time.
