To begin with, a number of techniques are examined for the extraction of information which can be applied to digital, multispectral images of urban areas. These include improvements to conventional per-pixel image classification algorithms, various methods of image fusion, the application of syntactic pattern recognition techniques, the role of mathematical morphology, and geostatistical approaches to the analysis and intepretation of image textural and spatial patterns. The book then moves on to identification of urban forms, the delineation of agglomerations, and the measurement of urban morphology. Surface models are considered for the analysis of integrated data sets, in which the scope of the applications is widened to consider the estimation of human population levels.
