This casebook offers examples of civil engineering practices in the acquisition and use of data obtained with advanced aerial and ground-based remote collection systems. The first section deals with remote sensing imagery and data utilization and applications to water resources site and route selection, environmental inventory, land use, and facilities. Specific applications include photobathymetry, landsat imagery, and energy-loss surveys using thermal infrared technology. Noncontact and contact data collection and data relay systems are reviewed, along with surface temperature mapping, photogeodesy and hydrologic telemetry from remote areas. The final section presents discussions on data processing and its applications to both data organization and information extension.
