Earth Observation for Monitoring and Modeling Land Use presents a practical guide and theoretical overview of the latest techniques and Earth observation technologies applied to land use and land cover change through qualitative assessment of Earth observation technologies. The book's chapters include detailed case studies, Earth observation datasets, and detailed applications of the technologies covered that are presented in a way that each chapter is a self-contained guide on a specific application of Earth observation technologies to land use problems, ensuring all technical and background information is provided on each subject without the need for cross-referencing or searching for other sources.

The book spatializes the understanding of monitoring land cover and use, and quantifies the challenges faced, allowing analysis of the dynamics of the territory in terms of occupation processes, land use, and its transformations. It focuses on practical applications of using remote sensing and modeling that support new research in relation to monitoring of land use and spectral modelling, elucidating the importance of advanced methodologies in the coverage and use mappings of the Earth.
