About the book

Time Series Analysis is a specific way of analyzing a sequence of data points collected over an interval of time. In time series analysis, analysts record data points at consistent intervals over a set period of time rather than just recording the data points intermittently or randomly. However, this type of analysis is not solely the act of collecting data over time. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the application of Time Series Analysis for Remotely sensed data. Remote Sensing Data is massive, complex, and diverse.

This book will provide a discussion of the advanced visualization means for time series data using various geostatistical approaches and methods. Machine Learning methods include supervised and unsupervised clustering of data in addition to selected geospatial applications in the environmental Management domains, as well as in oil and gas and mining. The book will be of special interest to the broader Geomatics Community, and all those professionals dealing with Remote Sensing Data and approaches for integrating spatial and attributes data in meaningful ways, with the help of geospatial technologies.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Karla Skuliber

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
