Learning Remote Sensing Using Dragon/ips® and OpenDragon Kindle edition Sally E. Goldin
Learning Remote Sensing is a textbook which offers a straightforward, hands-on treatment of the core concepts in remote sensing and raster GIS analysis. The book includes detailed descriptions of how either Dragon or OpenDragon can be used to perform a wide range of image analyses common in the remote sensing profession, and includes exercises on each topic.
Introductory Remote Sensing Digital Image Processing and Applications Paul J. Gibson and Clare H. Power
This textbook is focused on examples, with datasets and sample software, suitable for high school or undergraduate readers. The book includes a limited edition of Dragon/ips, but unfortunately it is an older version suitable only for Windows98 or MS-DOS computers. The included exercises can be run on OpenDragon.
Remote Sensing of the Environment: An Earth Resource Perspective (2nd Edition) John Jensen
This popular book introduces the fundamentals of remote sensing from an earth resource (versus engineering) perspective. The author emphasizes the use of remote sensing data for useful spatial biophysical or socio-economic information that can be used to make decisions.
