ECDIS is one of the most complex and sophisticated navigational tools on board a ship today. All SOLAS-ships will be fitted with this equipment over the next few years. High quality training and instructions are therefore essential requirements and this is where this book can play an important role. The objective of the book is to impart practical hands-on knowledge about ECDIS. For less experienced users, the book will help to gain a profound overview of the principles of ECDIS navigation and the related challenges. However, it is likely that advanced ECDIS operators will also be able to find new answers and helpful suggestions for ECDIS navigation in this book. Based upon the principles of the IMO Model Course 1.27, the book is suitable for all kinds of ECDIS courses in different settings.

High Resolution Optical Satellite Imagery

This book had been awarded the Karl Kraus Medal 2016 by ISPRS.

It is Written by a team of acknowledged international experts, this is a comprehensive guide to the characteristics and use of high resolution optical images from satellite-borne sensors, concentrating on sensors designed for mapping. It considers in detail satellites launched since 1999 with GSD of less than 1m, but also looks at sensors with a ground sample distance (GSD) of less than 15m, operational since SPOT 1. The book explains to students, anyone working in map production and scientists working in fields other than mapping, the way in which high resolution imagery is obtained and the issues which surround its collection and use.
