Our book “Remote Sensing and GIS for Ecologists – Using Open Source software” will soon be available. We worked through the 3rd proof and fixed all remaining issues. Looking forward to the printed version. The book offers a great overview of Remote Sensing applications using Open Source software, mainly R but also QGIS and provides you with working code to practically redo the analysis outlined in the book. The new RStoolbox R package which has been developed in parallel to the book is used extensively.

We finally submitted our book “Remote Sensing and GIS for Ecologists” to the publisher. It took longer than anticipated and we learned a lot. Looking forward to the printed version.
More details how to order and the expected publishing date can be found at http://www.pelagicpublishing.com/remote-sensing-and-gis-for-ecologists.html
we will post news and updates about the book and its content at book.ecosens.org
This book is about how ecologists can integrate remote sensing and GIS in their daily work. It will allow ecologists to get started with the application of remote sensing and to understand its potential and limitations. Using practical examples, the book covers all necessary steps from planning field campaigns to deriving ecologically relevant information through remote sensing and modelling of species distributions.
This books explains how to apply remote sensing and GIS to ecological research projects. It will provide practical examples cover each step, from planning through to remote sensing and modelling. Only OpenSource software will be used for the examples such as R, QGIS and GRASS.
