Digital image databases support GIS operations
Lenzen, T.W. & Foresman, T.W. (1993) Digital image databases support GIS operations. GIS World, 6(11), pp. 36-38.
Evaluates trends in the imagery built into GIS applications to supplement existing vector data of streets, boundaries, infrastructure and utilities. These include large area digital orthophotos, Landsat and SPOT data. Future developments include 3 to 5 metre pixel resolutions from satellites, 1 to 2 metres from aircraft. GPS and improved image analysis techniques will also assist in improving resolution and accuracy.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
