Abstract

The collection of papers in this volume includes standard urban applications of GIS and multi-spectral remote sensing—as well as applications that demonstrate the utility of emerging (and increasingly accessible) technologies, such as LIDAR (J. Jensen et al.). The inclusion of LIDAR examples reflects the growing use of LIDAR technologies in urban planning and civil engineering. The precision of this technology makes it ideal for use in complex urban systems. Similarly, hyper-spectral sensors offer high resolution options to assess a variety of urban surfaces. With respect to both technologies, falling costs associated with both LIDAR and hyperspectral data are making these increasingly viable methods for urban data collection.
