"... another excellent resource for researchers who are dealing with geospatial data, particularly remote sensing data/images." -Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing, January 2016 "... an authoritative and thought-provoking account of scaling issues in spatial information and analysis. Written by leading authorities in the field, this book should be of considerable value to anyone working with spatial data by providing a contemporary account of scale, its characterisation and analysis." -Giles Foody, University of Nottingham, UK "... a timely addition to the growing literature on the topic of scale and change of support. ... The authors have done a marvelous job of tackling this difficult topic with enough breadth and depth, producing what should become the reference in the field for years to come." -Pierre Goovaerts, BioMedware, Inc "... A truly informative collection ... will certainly promote the importance of scale as the importance of geography has been increasingly recognized by people while stepping into the so-called "Digital Earth" big data age. -Hui Lin, Institute of Space and Earth Information Science, The Chinese University of Hong Kong "... a cutting edge analytical survey that presents scale in its myriad contexts, effectively linking it with cartography, spatial accuracy, spatial sampling, and spatial statistics. As such, it will set a new standard for the next round of state-of-the-art work concerning geographic scale." -Daniel A. Griffith, University of Texas at Dallas "... the book will serve as a long and lasting contribution to the scale aspects that are fundamental to the many spatial problems that are covered." -Alfred Stein, University of Twente, Faculty of Geo-information and Earthobservation (ITC), Enschede, The Netherlands
