Sharing is Caring

Bethesda, MD May 1, 2020: The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing: The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society announces the release of the Manual of Remote Sensing, 4th Ed. (MRS-4), an “enhanced” electronic publication available online from ASPRS. This edition expands its scope from previous editions, focusing on new and updated material since the turn of the 21st Century. Stanley Morain (Editor-in-Chief), and co-editors Michael Renslow and Amelia Budge have compiled material provided by numerous contributors who are experts in various aspects of remote sensing technologies, data preservation practices, data access mechanisms, data processing and modeling techniques, societal benefits, and legal aspects such as space policies and space law. These topics are organized into nine chapters. MRS4 is unique from previous editions in that it is a “living” document that can be updated easily in years to come as new technologies and practices evolve. It also is designed to include animated illustrations and videos to further enhance the reader’s experience.

MRS-4 is available to ASPRS Members as a member benefit or can be purchased by non-members. To access MRS-4, visit
