This book focuses on new perspectives and advanced theoretical and application research in remote sensing. It is concerned with the study of scientific problems of remote sensing and geodesy and related interdisciplinary sciences. It discusses some contemporary issues related to geodesy in engineering projects, which are critical components in civil construction and often require detailed management techniques and unique solutions to address failures and remedial measures. Chapters address such topics as mineral mapping, soft computing techniques, geodesign, marine geodesy, and much more. The book is a useful resource for surveyors, engineers, geodesists, and geophysicists.
